Buying a loft for sale in DTLA’s Historic Core? You’ll love getting to know the area’s history – especially the history involving the Million Dollar Theater, Roxie Theatre, and Cameo Theater.
Million Dollar Theater
This movie palace, located at 307 South Broadway, was built by Sid Grauman and opened in 1918 with a seating capacity of 2.345. Its beautiful façade was designed by Albert C. Martin and William Lee Woollett. It was once one of LA’s most prestigious movie palaces. By the 1950s, it was presenting films in Spanish and English, as well as variety shows. Fun fact: Ben-Hur played at the Million Dollar Theater for 6 months straight in 1925.
The Roxie Theatre, another notable movie palace, is located at 518 South Broadway. Built in 1932, it was the last movie palace built on this street. With its amazing art deco style and capacity for 1,600 patrons, it’s a can’t-miss in DTLA – but now it’s used as a retail space.
Nestled at 528 South Broadway since 1910, the Cameo Theater used to be known as Clune’s Broadway. It closed in 1991, but before that date, it was the oldest continuously operating movie theater in the state. Now, it’s a marketplace with a number of vendors located inside.
