To see what's recently been added to the mix visit the Los Angeles Theatres Facebook page.

Theatres By Address: Los Angeles main list

These list goes west to include Malibu. South to the beach. North into the hills. East as far as the county line. The separate San Gabriel Valley, Pomona and Whittier section has entries that include Alhambra, Arcadia, Rosemead, El Monte,Temple City, Monrovia, Duarte, Monterey Park and others. There's also a separate San Fernando Valley section.

Please let me know if you need help finding something. Also please get in touch if you notice mistakes or have material to add.  Thanks!  Photos with these lists are mine unless otherwise noted.
You can click on any of them for larger views.

Not on this list: The theatres on side streets downtown are listed here but you can also go to the Downtown Directory which gives both an alphabetical listing as well as a street by street list.
For a Hill Street list see the Theatres West of Broadway page. Similarly, the Broadway, Spring Street and Main Street pages have arrays showing theatres by address along each of those streets.

See the separate Hollywood Theatres by street address section for Hollywood Blvd. locations. Other Hollywood addresses are both on this list as well as on the Hollywood map.

See the Wilshire theatre map for theatres on Wilshire Boulevard or in downtown Santa Monica. See the Ocean Park Theatres page for venues in that area and Venice. See the East Los Angeles Theatres page for East LA, Boyle Heights and Montebello addresses. The Glendale, Pasadena and Long Beach pages have addresses in each of those cities.
