The Wiltern

In the heart of Los Angeles' Koreatown sits the Wiltern Theater and above it rises the Pellissier Building. Named for the famous corner it sits on, Wilshire Boulevard and Western Avenue, this 1931 Art Deco masterpiece was built originally to stage vaudeville acts as the Western Theater, but was renamed Wiltern after a brief dark period in the mid 1930s. Currently, it serves as a major mid-level live theatre venue and glorious reminder of LA's architectural past.
