Apple Store coming to Broadway’s Tower Theatre as Delijani family – long-time Bringing Back Broadway partners - execute deal to bring one of the world’s top brand names to Broadway’s Tower Theatre.
It’s official – Apple is coming to Broadway! Councilmember José Huizar and his Bringing Back Broadway initiative, which has focused for the last decade on revitalizing one of Los Angeles’ most historic streets, including its 12 historic theaters, welcomed the news of Apple, the seminal tech giant, coming to Broadway.
A new Apple Store and event space will make Broadway its home with a restoration of the Tower Theatre, which was built in 1927 by famed theater designer S. Charles Lee. The building, located at 802. S Broadway, will see a major historic restoration, including revitalizing the theater’s terracotta tile exterior, as well as its marquee and tower blade. The new store will honor the theater’s past while creating a new space with modern amenities, such as balcony level access via elevators. The Tower Theatre is owned by the Delijani family – who also own several other theaters on Broadway (The Los Angeles, Palace and State theaters).
“When one of the top companies on the entire planet says we want to be on Broadway, we want to be part of Bringing Back Broadway, it doesn’t get any better than that,” said Councilmember Huizar. “It is definitely a signature moment for our Bringing Back Broadway initiative, and the Delijani family, who have been invested in preserving our historic theaters on Broadway for decades. It is proof that our collective vision and efforts on the revitalization of Broadway have paid off and will continue to do so for years to come.”
