Congratulations to the Globe Theatre on its grand reopening! One of LA's true historic treasures, Councilmember Huizar is proud to have it be a part of his Bringing Back Broadway initiative in #DTLA.
Built in 1913, The Globe Theatre is filled with history. Debuting as a cultural destination and thriving nightclub, The Globe Theatre harkens back to its illustrious past with live nightly performances, designed to transport and dazzle the crowds. The Globe Theatre will feature restored Baroque sculptures and decorative elements, an original marble staircase and mosaic and a restored historic ticket booth. The theater’s original entrance from Broadway is also getting reactivated, after having been walled in and covered for decades. Additionally, the theater will have state-of-the-art light and sound systems, fully modern air conditioning and heating, as well as all new electrical and plumbing infrastructure. The theatre has even renovated Charlie Chaplin’s private box, creating an exclusive suite to host parties and small groups. As well, as an integral part of the Downtown community, The Globe Theatre is a key component in Councilmember Huizar’s Bringing Back Broadway initiative, and its renovation will play a key part in revitalizing the Historic Broadway corridor.
Bringing Back Broadway is a public-private partnership – an ambitious 10-year plan led by Councilmember Huizar to revitalize the Historic Broadway corridor in Downtown L.A. Goals are to provide economic development and business assistance, reactivate Broadway’s historic vacant theaters, as well as more than one million square feet of vacant commercial space and increase parking and transit options, including bringing the beloved streetcar back to downtown Los Angeles.
