Step into the grandeur of the past at the Variety Arts Theater, a historical gem from 1924. With its roots as the most aesthetically pleasing and acoustically superior theater in Los Angeles, this 1,100-seat proscenium arch venue has been a testament to performing arts excellence. This theater has been a hallowed hall where the creme de la creme of legitimate theater has performed, leaving an indelible mark on the cultural tapestry of the city. Its stage has seen a plethora of performances ranging from original plays penned by the finest Hollywood studio writers to an eclectic mix of classical pieces and celebrated Broadway hits. As the theater undergoes a transformative refurbishment, we are opening our doors to film and production crews looking for a vast, raw, and adaptable space. The "as is" condition of the theater presents a unique opportunity for you to craft a setting that fits your vision, whether it be for a period piece, a modern production, or something uniquely avant-garde. The inherent charm and character of the theater provide an evocative backdrop that is hard to find in today's modern venues. Its vast, untouched spaces are waiting to be animated by your creativity and imagination. Come and make the most of the Variety Arts Theater’s unique ambiance for your next film or production event, and contribute to the next chapter of its storied history.
