The Aero Theatre, its name a tribute to the aerospace industry, was built by the Douglas Aircraft Company. The Streamline Moderne-styled theatre was designed by architect R.M. Woolpert and originally opened its doors to moviegoers in 1940.
The historic Los Feliz 3 Theatre is located on Vermont Ave., three blocks north of Hollywood Blvd., in one of L.A.’s most popular east-side neighborhoods. Designed by architect Clifford A. Balch, the Los Feliz opened in 1935 as a single-screen theatre, and was converted to a triplex in the early 1990s
The Egyptian Theatre is a classic and beloved movie palace originally built in 1922 during the silent film era. A fixture in Hollywood’s Golden Age, the Egyptian was the site of the world’s very first movie premiere of ROBIN HOOD starring Douglas Fairbanks and remains to this day as the ultimate destination for moviegoers.
