El Rey Theater

  • Events
The El Rey Theatre is an original art deco theater in the heart of the Miracle Mile, one of Los Angeles' preserved art deco districts. The El Rey was built in 1936 and designed by Clifford Balch. After over 50 years as a first run movie house, the El Rey was converted into a live music venue in 1994. A registered Historic-Cultural Monument, the El Rey has sweeping staircases, an art deco lobby, VIP balcony lounge and a grand ballroom equipped with a full stage. The El Rey is a general admission, standing room venue, unless stated otherwise in specific show details. Advance tickets are sold through TheElRey.com and TheElRey.com/store. We have a box office the night of the show for will call, which opens at the same time as doors. The only time we sell tickets at our box office is the night of the show, when doors open, providing they have not sold out ahead of time.
