Los Angeles Theater

Saves: 76
Check-ins: 38
Commissioned by HL Gumbiner and constructed in the 1930s this theater is a reminder of those days when the silent films reigned and men like Charlie Chaplin etched their names in the memories of the public. It was designed by Charles Lee and Samuel Tilden Norton who both took a lot of inspiration from the notorious symbol of ostentatious splendor - Louis XIV's Versailles. The 2,000-seat theater no longer operates as a venue but is used as a film location for movies and commercials. (Submitted by Southern California)
