El Portal Theatre is a historic landmark in the San Fernando Valley located in the heart of North Hollywood just minutes from Universal Studios, Warner Brothers, Disney, ABC, CBS-Radford and NBC. The theatre, originally built as a vaudeville house in 1926, sits across from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and the Art Institute of California - Hollywood, and the new Laemmle 7 Screen Theaters. The art deco marquee is visible to thousands of cars that travel on Lankershim Boulevard daily. In the mid 2000’s the long awaited redevelopment of North Hollywood came to fruition with the grand openings of restaurants, upscale shops and a charming, urbanesque environment.
Since its first opening in 1926 - first for Vaudeville, then Silent Movies, and then Academy Award winning films, as the primo movie house in the valley - the theatre has weathered the Jazz Age, the Depression, 4 wars, and finally the great earthquake of 1994. This year, it will welcome for the first time, the Grand Opening Gala of Polish Film Festival Los Angeles.
