  • Overview
The El Rey Theatre is an original art deco theater in the heart of the Miracle Mile, one of Los Angeles' preserved art deco districts. The El Rey was built in 1936 and designed by Clifford Balch. After over 50 years as a first run movie house, the El Rey was converted into a live music venue in 1994. A registered Historic-Cultural Monument, the El Rey has sweeping staircases, an art deco lobby, VIP balcony lounge and a grand ballroom equipped with a full stage.

El Rey Theatre is available for concert/show rentals, special events, location shoots, weddings, and bar/bat mitzvahs. Amenities include grand ballroom, concert quality sound system, state-of-the-art lighting system, VIP lounge, valet and self parking, event management and full security.
