One of the doors to the booth in the upper balcony corridor.  Doesn't that sign say "Welcome"? It's a 2014 Sandi Hemmerlein photo. See her Avoiding Regret photo essays "Wiltern Theatre, Public Areas" and "Wiltern, Off Limits Areas" for many more photos. Thanks, Sandi!

The vista out one of the booth ports along a Lycian follow spot. It's a 2014 photo by Mike Hume. You'll find many of his great photos spread around the other Wiltern pages. Head to the Historic Theatre Photography section of his website for his full Wiltern Theatre set as well as hundreds of other theatre photos.  The Wiltern set is also on Flickr. You can also pay him a visit on the Historic Theatre Photography Facebook page. Thanks, Mike!
