Warner Grand Theatre

The Warner Grand Theatre is a lavish, art-deco theater opened to the public on January 20, 1931 during the magical decades for films in the 1920s and 1930s. Jack Warner called it "The Castle of Your Dreams." The Warner Grand Theatre was designed by architect B. Marcus Priteca and interior designer A.T. Heinsbergen. Mr. Priteca designed three lavish art-deco palaces which were located in San Pedro, Beverly Hills, and Huntington Park. The Warner Grand is the last of the three original theaters left intact and has been undergoing gradual refurbishment after a thirty-year decline. Priteca later designed Hollywood's famous Pantages Theater.

The Theatre is located at 478 West 6th Street in San Pedro, just below Pacific and 6th Street intersection. There is metered parking which is free after 5 pm and free all day Sunday. There is also parking available on 6th Street and also in a well-lit outdoor lot on 7th street, just below Pacific. Many of the theater patrons choose to park near Think Café, The Whale and Ale, and Neil's. There is about two blocks of walking to the theater required when parking at the nearby diners. Many of the diners are popular after the theater lets out and stay open late to accommodate.
