Belasco Theater

Belasco Theater Los Angeles History

The Belasco Theater has been a Los Angeles landmark for over a century although it has been in various states of use and under a few different names over the years. In the early Twentieth century the theater was home to plays and had huge stars like Helen Hayes and Humphrey Bogart appear on stage. It suffered a brief closure in the 1940's before being reopened later in the decade as a burlesque theater. From the Fifties through the Seventies the venue was used as a church before again being sold and being used as a rental space for gatherings. These days the Belasco is used as a concert venue and regularly brings in big time music acts to perform.

The massive renovations recently done to the Belasco have helped make it one of the most popular night spots in all of Los Angeles.
