Located in the Mid-Wilshire area of Los Angeles, the El Rey Theatre has been bringing entertainment to the Miracle Mile region for more than 80 years. Initially designed to be a movie theatre, the Art Deco-style El Rey Theatre later transformed into a dance club in the early '80s. However, since 1994, El Rey Theatre events have consisted of concerts performed by acts such as Turnover and more. To rekindle its cinema roots, the intimately sized venue with its capacity of 771 has been featured in a couple of film projects. In Night of the Comet, the El Rey Theatre serves as the main character's place of employment. For the best seating to any El Rey Theatre event, get your tickets at StubHub.
