The longtime Hollywood theater first opened in 1926 as the Carter DeHaven Music Box Theatre and featured such legendary performers as Fanny Brice, Jean Harlow, Clark Gable, James Cagney and Marlene Dietrich. In the ensuing decades, the theater had several name changes and reappeared in various incarnations. In the 1980s, the Spanish Colonial-style venue was renamed as the Henry Fonda Theater before undergoing renovations and reopening in the 2007 as the Music Box at the Fonda. In 2010, the name was shortened to the Music Box after the place was refurbished with glittery new fixtures and mural-size classical-style paintings. In 2012, there was yet another change, with the local concert promoters Goldenvoice taking over the Music Box and renaming it the Fonda Theatre. Currently, the Fonda hosts concerts, dance nights, awards shows and special events. The Kills, Gogol Bordello, Cults, the Dresden Dolls, Gang of Four, Ariel Pink, Os Mutantes, Television, Concrete Blonde, Jenny & Johnny, the New York Dolls and Turbonegro are among the diverse musicians who've graced the theater's large stage. Smoking is permitted only on the upstairs outdoors patio. The theater has several full bars. All ages. Street and lot parking.
