Bringing back the United Artists Theatre

Hosted by

Downtown Los Angeles has seen a revival of historic theaters. The Million Dollar Theater, The Tower, The Globe, the Belasco. But there's one theater that stands out for its opulence and, now, its diversity of programming. The United Artists Theatre – now known as The Theatre at Ace Hotel – opened 89 years ago this week. Producer Gideon Brower has the story of the movie stars who created it, the showmen, preachers and entrepreneurs who ran it, and the generations of audiences that have walked through its doors.
