Shrine Auditorium LOS ANGELES, CA — The Shrine Auditorium and Expo Center, North America's largest theater, has recently completed its multi-million dollar improvement plan, with renovations including a new multi-level parking facility, which added 700-900 spaces (depending on nature of parking) at the corner of 32nd and Royal Street, as well as construction of the new multi-color Royal Street Performance Plaza at the entrance of the Auditorium. Other improvements include an upgraded state-of-the-art stage with newly engineered rigging, lighting and sound system, new roof, complete paint job, doubled women's restroom capacity and renovation of other restrooms. " Great care was taken to design a parking structure that is consistent with the Moroccan architectural motif of both the Shrine Auditorium and the Expo Center," states Douglas Worthington, Auditorium General Manager. "The multi-million dollar, seven-story building, brings convenience and accessibility to the thousands of guests who visit the Shrine." Another highlight of the renovation is evident within the theater walls themselves. The spotlight shines on stage as patrons enjoy not only a more efficient, but also more cost-effective, state-of-the-art stage. The newly-engineered rigging and lighting systems enhance all Auditorium performances, and the new 6,300 renovated plush seats allow for a more enjoyable and comfortable viewing atmosphere for the Shrine's varied audiences. The recently installed air conditioning system in both the Auditorium and Expo Center affords Shrine patrons maximum comfort. The Shrine facility also houses a commercial kitchen and has secured, fenced, and lighted parking lots. The Shrine sparkles on the outside as well as on the inside. Passers-by will be dazzled by the recently painted five-color pallette on the exterior of the Auditorium and Expo Center. The Expo Center displays a new roof and has received a complete paint job and new wall coverings, as well. And, continuing with a good taste of its operations, the Shrine maintains its joint agreement with Aramark Services, which bring freshness to all Auditorium events with its tasty menu and modernized concession stands.
