Once serving as a cinema, the converted El Rey Theatre now hosts events and live entertainment in Los Angeles, California. The venue was designed and developed by Clifford Balch in 1936 as a high-end movie theater. Today the building boasts its original wood architecture, creating a mesmerizing atmosphere.
Vibrant neon signs adorn the exterior of the building, illuminating the entrance. Grand crystal chandeliers light up the hall inside and spotlights project shapes onto the walls. At the center of the space, lies a multi-level dance floor and space for seating. Adjacent to the stage is a balcony fashioned with red carpet floors. Tables and chairs are set out for guests to socialize and dine at while watching the scene below.
The El Rey Theatre’s floor plan can be arranged to suit different event layouts. Tables and seating may be added along the sides or in the center of the space. The large curtained stage allows for various kinds of entertainment to be held. The balcony area is available to use as a VIP section. Themed embellishments such as white drapery can be incorporated to enhance the space. As a final touch, the outside signage provides the opportunity to headline the event with a message.
