    Beautiful venue built in 1964; stepping inside is like going back in time. Home to the wonderful LA Opera. Get here EARLY due to parking & DTLA traffic, late-comers will get caught in the seating hold

    Come 1hr b4 the opera start time for the pre-performance lecture on the 2nd floor. 1st timers, come on time or the doors will close & you will have to view the opera on TV screens until intermission.

    This place is beautiful! Parking is a near on performance days so be sure to allow extra time to navigate the huge LA Music Center parking structure

    Did you know that Isaac Hayes won an Academy Award for his composition of the "Theme from Shaft" here in 1972? He became the 3rd African-American to win an Oscar.

    You're not going to be sorely disappointed by the courtyard dining situation but then, you're not going to be blown away either. No shame in hitting it up if you have to though.
