Go to the Ahmanson Theatre
The Ahmanson Theatre opened in 1967, three years after the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, with a state-of-the-art configuration to provide variable seating capacity and accommodating a diverse selection of performances, from the intimate to the spectacular.
The countless productions by Center Theatre Group have included Hollywood giants such as Katharine Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Charlton Heston, among many others. It has been the host of theatrical world premieres, award-winning shows and the ideal stage for musicals and direct-from-Broadway productions.
The Ahmanson Theatre’s proscenium was recently renovated with state-of-the-art staging and sound equipment.
