  Million Dollar Theater
by Dabs

Broadway, from around 3rd Street to 9th Street, was LA's theater district with most of the theaters built in the 1920s and 1930s, the largest concentration of pre WWII movie theaters in America.

The LA Conservancy walking tour has a walking tour that showcases some of the still standing theaters and they also run a program called Last Remaining Seats where you can watch classic films in one of the grand old movie theaters.

Here's a nice summary of the theaters in this area, not sure of it's accuracy but you can get an idea of where the theaters are and some of their history.
