About the Wiltern Theatre

Welcome to the home of Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker in Los Angeles! The Wiltern was built in 1931 and designed by architect Stiles O. Clements of Morgan, Walls & Clements, the city's oldest architectural firm. The Wiltern Theatre was originally designed as a vaudeville theater and opened as the Warner Brothers Western Theater.  In 1981, the Wiltern was purchased by developer Wayne Ratkovich who worked with architect Brenda Levin to restore both the theater and the office building to their former glory. After a four-year renovation, the Wiltern Theatre finally opened again to the public on May 1, 1985. Today, the Wiltern hosts live performances and concerts, as well as televised events and has served as a location for several feature films.
