Now is your chance to travel back in time to the roaring 20s when downtown Los Angeles was in the heyday of the Hollywood era. At the center of this exciting world was Broadway. Filled with theatre’s all along the corridor as well as food options, locals gathered along this street for a sure fire way to have a good time. Recently, the street has undergone a revitalization project and it will soon be reopened to the public! Come out on January 30th for Night on Broadway! This event is FREE and open to the public.
While the Broadway district in Los Angeles was once the epicenter of downtown, over the years it has fallen to disarray. However, under the care of City Councilmember Jose Huizar, who decided to head this revitalization project, the Historic Broadway corridor is now on the up and up. This Bring Back Broadway initiative will be celebrating its 8th anniversary this year. To celebrate, the city is throwing Night on Broadway, a block party for locals and visitors alike to come and check out the historic theaters along this street. At each theatre there will be different forms of live entertainment that can be enjoyed by all.
At the Million Dollar Theatre, travel back in time to the 20s and enjoy cabaret performances by groups such as Phat Cat Swinger, Burgundy Bells and Miss Tosh. At the Palace Theatre listen to a live performance by artists playing electronic music. At the Los Angeles Theatre, check out local art installations and film shorts. At the Tower Theatre, there will be comedy acts being presented and at the Globe Theatre stay for a game of Rebel Bingo – this is not your grandma’s bingo. At the Theatre at the Ace Hotel check out live music and at the Orpheum Theatre come check out the entertainment performance, “The Last Night” presented by Zen Arts. Broadway from 4th to 7th street will be closed off for the Festival Area that will be your home base for the night. If you plan on attending a Night on Broadway, book a hotel near the Orpheum.
