Reliving the Gay '20s at a First-Class Theater in Los Angeles, CA
Built in the 1920s atop the legendary film location of D. W. Griffith’s most expensive movie (Intolerance), Ed Wood had an office here at the Vista. The theater's rich Hollywood history, then, is reason enough to visit. While there, catch a flick—the theater is fully operational. In fact, it was remodeled in 2002 to upgrade the sound system and screen. The seating also was upgraded, or rather, your seats were: part of the remodel included the removal of every other row, so it’s like you bought a first-class ticket to your movie. The circa-1920s art-deco Egyptian interior was left in tact, so you'll feel like donning a gay ‘20s suit the second you walk into the lobby. Don’t forget the popcorn.
