135 N. Grand Ave. , Music Center Plaza, Los Angeles, CA 90012, United States

One of four theatres comprising the downtown Music Center, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion opened in 1964 thanks to a $20 million fundraising effort from Dorothy Buffum Chandler, wife of Los Angeles Times publisher Norman Chandler. Designed by renowned local architect Welton Becket (also responsible for the Capitol Records Building and Cinerama Dome), the theatre has a towering glass façade, a fountain-filled plaza, and 3,200 seats surrounding one of the largest stages in the nation. The pavilion is home to the Los Angeles Opera and also hosted the Academy Awards 24 times during the 20th century.
