Soaring confidently at the intersection of Wilshire and Western Blvds (get it?), this extraordinary, turquoise-hued deco landmark started life as a movie theater (West Side Story premiered here). These days it's an epic venue for live music, comedy and occasional screenings of cult-status movies: recent live acts included Passenger, David Crosby and comic Adam Devine of Modern Family fame.
If you find a show you like, don't miss it. This stage has a way about bringing out the best in a performer.
