The area
Neighbourhood: Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.

Beautiful old theatre
Oct 2018 • Couples
I just came from seeing Johnny Marr at this theatre. So beautiful! Theatres like this are hard to come by these days. It seemed very well maintained and loved. Seats were mostly comfy and upholstery looked really good.

I will say though, as a tall person with long legs, sitting in the upper balcony was painful for my knees. I'm certain that days in the past, people may not have had this problem.

As well, I'm not certain the air conditioning is 100% working for the kinds of shows this venue hosts now. I was very hot and sweaty by the end of the show and hardly stood up in my seating area at all. Perhaps again, it could be due to that I was high in the back, but I needed a shower after the show.

I would certainly not think twice about seeing another show here in the future.

They just don't build them like this anymore
Jun 2016 • Couples
We attended a screening of "Singing in the Rain" as part of "Last Remaining Seats", a program to provide exposure to the art and architecture of the old theaters in LA's theater district. What an opportunity - this building is just stunning and the history is pretty amazing. Definitely worth the trip to the area, but you must coordinate with special events to have inside access.

Beautiful Venue
Sep 2014 • Friends
We attended a private Coldplay concert at the Ace Theater. This place is incredible. The murals & the ornate details of the entire place were stunning. It was a little warm but, it is an older building and LA at the time had record high temperatures. I highly recommend taking a tour of this venue, it is like stepping back in time.

Ace Hotel and Theater is spectacularily beautiful
Jun 2014 • Family
The old UA theater has been renovated back to it's early movie star glory with a wide screen and big stage. Inside the stylish Ace Hotel, it's right on Broadway. The theater is amazingly beautiful and a show unto itself. I had a wonderful evening at the LA Conservancy's Last Remaining Seats watching Back to the Future. They even brought the original flying Delorean.

Great seats at UA Glendale
The United Artists Theater in Glendale has new great seats. Now with leg rests and the seat back reclines. It's a huge big change.
