Greek Theatre (Los Angeles)
The Greek Theatre is a 5,700-seat amphitheater, located at Griffith
Park, in Los Angeles, California. It was built in 1929, opening on
September 29 of that year. The Greek Theatre is owned by the city of Los
Angeles, and is managed, operated and promoted by the Nederlander
Designed by architect Frederick Heath, the amphitheater's stage is
modeled after a Greek temple.
The Greek Theatre is in Griffith Park. It was paid for with a donation
from Griffith J. Griffith, who also donated the land for the park.
The Greek Theatre won the Best Small Outdoor Venue award seven times in
the past eight years, which was awarded by Pollstar Magazine, the
industry's leading trade publication.
The Greek Theatre had a limited concert season during its first two
decades. During World War II, the amphitheater was used as a barracks.
In 1947, however, the theatre was used for the Broadway show Anything
Goes for two weeks. During the 1950s, under the management of James
Doolittle, a concert promoter, the amphitheatre underwent a series of
renovations that allowed the theater to compete with rival 1950s’
theaters; Doolittle in fact drew up plans for those renovations.
In 1983, the Greek Theatre's seating capacity was expanded to 6,187, but
recent renovations have brought the Greek Theatre's capacity down to
6,162 in 1995 and to 5,700 in 2004. In 2009 the Los Angeles Fire Marshal
permitted the addition of two more rows in the pit, bringing full
capacity at the Greek to 5,870 seated / 5,900 general admission.
The Greek Theatre is used for concerts, stage shows, and graduation
ceremonies for Thomas Starr King Middle School and John Marshall High
School, among other events.
