The Theatre at Ace Hotel was the flagship movie palace for United Artists - the film studio founded by Mary Pickford, D.W. Griffith, Douglas Fairbanks and Charlie Chaplin - before its restoration into a 1,600-seat theater and event space with a three-story, grand lobby and ornate, open balcony. During the restoration, the theater was retrofitted with a state-of-the-art digital projection system and cinema sound, which is an independent, ultramodern live sound system. It also received an elaborate contemporary stage lighting system. Since the performance space opened, it has hosted hundreds of large-scale and innovative events, including lectures, major movie premieres, dance performances and shows by the likes of Patti Smith.
