In the early 1900s, lavish theatres and movie palaces began popping up across Los Angeles. Though a large number of them have been transformed, altered or razed over the years, several of the historic venues remain in operation and in pristine condition. While the opulent sites are not always open to the public, they can be accessed a number of ways, such as the Los Angeles Conservancy’s Broadway Historic Theatre and Commercial District Walking Tour, and the Conservancy’s Last Remaining Seats film series program.

Because the theatres are regularly used for filming, you can also catch a glimpse of them onscreen. Read on for a list of ten historic venues and the productions they have appeared in.

From Hank Greenberg and Sandy Koufax to Joe DiMaggio, Jackie Robinson, Roberto Clemente, Fernando Valenzuela and Ichiro Suzuki, these players didn’t just play the game - they changed it. For generations of American Jews and other minorities, they served as athletic, cultural and ethical role models. Through more than 130 original objects - including game-worn uniforms, films and historic footage, awards, baseball cards, and signed memorabilia - the exhibition pays tribute to these major league game changers and, just as importantly, the community of fans they inspired.
