Los Angeles: Downtown

Los Angeles: Downtown

Downtown Los Angeles was the site of LA’s first two theatre districts, the first on Main St and the second on Broadway, which is said to pre-date New York’s Broadway theatre district. With 12 movie palaces along a six-block stretch, LA’s Broadway is the largest remaining concentration of theatres and movie palaces in the United States.
