Built in 1931 by entrepreneur and film exhibitor, H.L. Gumbiner, and designed by prolific theater architect S. Charles Lee, the Los Angeles Theatre was one of the last great movie palaces to be built on Broadway. Spending more than $1 million, Gumbiner insisted on exceeding existing standards of extravagance. In the lobby , audiences were welcomed with a three-tiered fountain in a hall of mirrors, crystal chandeliers, and a grand stairway. But it doesn’t stop there, from the auditorium to the restaurant space to the glass-ceiling ballroom, the Los Angeles Theater is an unforgettable experience.
