Best Of
Opened in San Pedro in 1931, Warner Grand Theatre is the only surviving theater of the three elaborate movie palaces that the film studio Warner Bros. constructed in Southern California in the early 1930s. Designed by architect B. Marcus Priteca and interior designer Anthony Heinsbergen, the Warner Grand has an Art Deco Moderne style, with ornately carved ceilings and beautiful lamp fixtures throughout the large theater and lobby. After falling into a state of disrepair over the decades, the theater was extensively renovated with the help of the Grand Vision Foundation and the City of Los Angeles, which bought the building in 1996. Eventually, the revitalized theater was added to the National Register of Historic Places and is now a City of Los Angeles cultural and historic landmark. The Warner Grand continues to host movie screenings, as well as occasional pop music, classical and comedy events.
