In a surprising turn of events it seems that the Globe Theater, a historic theater in Los Angeles, has suddenly closed for good.

The news comes first from Wrestle Prestige, a local professional wrestling promotion, announcing the cancellation of their upcoming show that was scheduled to take place at the Globe Theater. Following their announcement, other shows on their upcoming event calendar have announced change of venues or cancellations.

The Globe Theater's official website is already taken offline. This is a sudden shift for one of the designated historic sights in Los Angeles that went under a remodel a little under a decade ago in 2015. The theater's preservation as a historic site allowed it to remain a vibrant part of the city's cultural fabric, bridging past and present in a continually evolving metropolis.

The Globe Theater's reported closure will mark the loss of a classic Los Angeles venue.

Established in 1913, this iconic venue, originally a movie palace, has transformed over the years into a multifaceted space for live performances, film screenings, and special events. Its ornate, Italian Renaissance-inspired architecture, complete with intricate frescoes and stunning decor, created an immersive experience for visitors. The theater's lavish design, highlighted by a majestic domed ceiling and grand stage, reflects the opulence of early 20th-century entertainment venues.

The Globe Theater hosted a diverse range of events, from avant-garde theater productions and classic film screenings, to professional wrestling promotion Pro Wrestling Guerilla and intimate private gatherings. We hope the Globe Theater can be preserved because it is a key part of the history of entertainment and artistry in Los Angeles.
