The Lowdown Venue Setting
One of Hollywood's first legitimate theatres, The Henry Fonda Music Box Theatre experienced a variety of incarnations during the 1920's, 1930's, and 1940's as part of an entertainment district of exceptional quality and diversity.
Keeping with that tradition, The Fonda Theatre re-opened in 2012 and has hosted performers such as Pearl Jam, Black Eyed Peas, Katy Perry, Radiohead, Stevie Wonder, Black Crowes, Tom Petty and Metallica to name a few. The Fonda Theatre's history and character create the perfect setting for award ceremonies, film/tv shoots, corporate meetings, private parties, and banquet dinners.
Our LA event venue also specializes in non-music events such as award ceremonies, film/TV shoots, bat/bar mitzvahs, private parties, dinners, and more! Watch the video above for a better picture of all that this incredible event venue in Los Angeles has to offer.
