    Los Angeles Theatres by Street Address   


This directory goes west to include Malibu and the San Fernando Valley.
South to the beach. North into the hills. East as far as the county line.

A separate San Gabriel Valley section (mid-way down the right column) has
 listings that include Alhambra, Arcadia, Rosemead, El Monte,
Temple City, Monrovia, Duarte, Monterey Park and others.

San Fernando Valley is in a separate section at the bottom of the right column.

Please let me know if you need help finding something. Also please get in
 touch if you notice mistakes or have material to add.  Thanks!

Not on this page:

The theatres on side streets downtown are listed here
but you can also go to the Downtown Directory which gives
 both an alphabetical listing as well as a street by street list for
the streets west of Hill St. and the numbered streets.

For a Hill Street list see the Theatres West of Broadway
page. Similarly, the Broadway, Spring Street and Main Street pages
have arrays showing theatres by address along each of those streets.

See the Hollywood Theatres map for Hollywood Blvd. locations.
Other Hollywood addresses are both on this list as well as on
the Hollywood map.

See the Wilshire theatre map for theatres on Wilshire Boulevard
or in downtown Santa Monica. See this site's Ocean Park Theatres page
 for venues in that area and Venice.

See the East Los Angeles Theatres page for East LA, Boyle
Heights and Montebello addresses.

See the Glendale, Pasadena and Long Beach pages
for addresses in each of those cities.

Cinema Treasures

See the Cinema Treasures Los Angeles list for doing an alphabetical
search. We've basically just taken those listings, added some
more stuff and sorted by address. Or if you want a handy list
for a particular city, Cinema Treasures is the way to go.

If you're looking for a list of theatres in a particular community note
that Cinema Treasures lists them all separately. Start with the California
page and note the selection bar just to the right of the "California" --
you can scoll down to find any town in the state.


Cinema Tour

This site has a nice spread with cities arranged
alphabetically and thumbnail photos of many of the theatres.
The Long Beach - Los Angeles page is a good place to start.

You can use the directory at the top of the page to select where you
want to go. Or enter the name of the theatre in the search box
on any Cinema Tour page to see what the site has.
