April Events at The Ace Hotel

The Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles has a long and storied history as one of Tinsletown’s most opulent and prestigious movie palaces. Located on Broadway in downtown, it was originally called The United Artists Theater and was designed by C. Howard Crane in Spanish Gothic style for the newly formed United Artists film studio founded by Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks, and Mary Pickford. The grand opening was held on December 26, 1927 with “My Best Girl,” a silent film starring Pickford and Buddy Rogers. John Barrymore was the master of ceremonies for the opening. Fairbanks said he hoped the theatre “will always be a reminder of the fact that Los Angeles is the center of production of the film industry.” In a profile by Motion Picture News in 1928, the article declared that it was “the final word in theatre construction.”
