Legion Theater at Post 432035 N. Highland Ave
Los Angeles 90068
This spectacularly renovated historic theater has always been an integral part of Hollywood Post 43 of the American Legion, chartered in 1919 by World War I veterans who worked in the motion picture business.
The Post’s historic Egyptian Revival building was completed in 1929. Classic Hollywood luminaries—veterans and nonveteran supporters—like Cecil B. DeMille, Adolph Menjou, and Mary Pickford were all instrumental in getting the post on its feet. Post 43 members have included the likes of Clark Gable, Gene Autry, Mickey Rooney, Ronald Reagan, Charlton Heston, Stan Lee, and many more show business figures.
Featuring state of the art digital projection and sound systems as well as 35mm and 70mm capabilities, the historic Legion Theater is the only theater in Hollywood owned and operated by veterans. Seating capacity for the renovated Legion Theater is 484 seats.
In addition to traditional movie concessions, Post 43 will also have a selection of coffee/tea and pastries for morning screenings as well as a selection of box lunches. The iconic Post 43 bar downstairs, where the likes of Clark Gable and Humphrey Bogart drank, will also be open for cocktails at 6:30pm on Thursday, April 11 and at 4pm Friday, April 12-Sunday, April 14.
