Geffen Playhouse

venue exterior

10886 Le Conte Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90024

One of Los Angeles premiere local theater venues, the Geffen Playhouse houses three performing arts spaces - the Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater, the Geffen Playhouse Annex and its largest venue, the Gil Cates Theater. Originally serving as a UCLA clubhouse from 1929, the building which now houses the Geffen was sold in the 1970s when part of it was converted to a theatre named the Westwood Playhouse. It was only in 1995 that the Geffen opened its doors with its current name after considerable fundraising, most notably from media magnate David Geffen.
