Lonely Planet review for Orpheum Theater
In the early 20th century, cacophonous Broadway was a glamorous shopping and theater strip, where megastars such as Charlie Chaplin leapt from limos to attend premieres at lavish movie palaces. Some - such as the Orpheum Theater have been restored and again host screenings and parties. The best way to get inside is on tours run by the Los Angeles Conservancy.
