The Los Angeles Theatre was the last of the great movie palaces built on Broadway and is one of the most accessible today, but really it should stand in here for a stroll down the length of Broadway through the Historic Core (roughly from Third Street, at Grand Central Market, to Olympic).

Among the Urban Outfitters, Umami Burger, and Ace Hotel, you’ll find the famously intricate Bradbury Building and a collection of grand movie theaters built in the years leading up to the Depression, some repurposed (that Urban Outfitters was a Rialto), some shuttered or converted to lesser uses, some on the verge of rehabilitation, and some back to their handsome old ways (the United Artists Theatre at the Ace).

The city has also begun dedicating a little more of the street to pedestrians, with wider sidewalks and tables and chairs, so it’s a nice stretch of Downtown to hang out in, especially in the spring, when the weather is warm but not painfully hot.
