Heading west, you now run into a theatre that is actually showing first-run movies. The Palace Theatre used to be the home of silent movies. The glittering bulbs in the front lobby and its neon marquee make the Palace one of the points to see in the evening. The Palace was built in 1911 and is one of L.A. oldest.

Nearby, the proud presence of the Arcade Theatre graces Broadway. The Arcade sports an archway above the now barren marquee. Sources state that this was the first Pantages vaudeville house in the area.

We now come across one of the finest of Broadway's finest... the Los Angeles Theatre.


The Museum of Neon Art has been allocated money to rehab a few signs on Broadway, including this one. Many thanks to Chris Nichols for info.

Built in 1931, the Los Angeles and its gold glittered lettering is the most lavish of the Broadway theatres. If you do take a trip to downtown Broadway, stop by here and take a glimpse at the magnificent architecture.
