HISTORY

In 1906 The Al Malaikah Shriners built the original Shrine Auditorium to serve as a civic center as well as their home base and clubhouse. In 1920 a fire burnt the building down in just 45 minutes. With plans to add an attached expo hall, The Shriners began rebuilding almost immediately. In January 1926 the new Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall opened and quickly became the center of entertainment in Los Angeles.

With a capacity of 6,300, The Shrine Auditorium is one of the largest theatres in Southern California. It also boasts the largest proscenium stage in North America. The Moorish history of the Mason fraternity inspired the building design, and with classic interior décor that is both beautiful and functional, The Shrine Auditorium is a perfect space for a wide variety of events. The attached Expo Hall is 54,000 square feet of versatile event space that can fit up to 5,000 people.

Over the years, The Shrine has housed a wide variety of high-profile televised events including the SAG Awards, the Grammys, the Emmy Awards, and the Academy Awards. An incredible assortment of musical acts have graced the stage, including the late Frank Sinatra, Bruce Springsteen, Jimi Hendrix and Jack White. The Shrine also hosts orchestral concerts, ballets, film festivals and theatrical performances.

In 2013 Goldenvoice took over management of The Shrine Auditorium & Expo Hall. Goldenvoice’s expertise and connections to the nation’s top events and concert tours will ensure that The Shrine will continue to thrive as well as to delight anyone who walks through its doors.
