State Theatre

Theater in Downtown Los Angeles & Boyle Heights

This beaux-arts creation is Broadway’s biggest entertainment complex, seating close to 2500 people. The theater debuted in 1921 with a vaudeville show and the silver-screen premiere of A Trip to Paradise. The facade features terracotta ornamentation while the building's lobby and auditorium find their inspiration in a Spanish castle. These days the theater functions as a Spanish-language church.
