The Coronet Theatre was a theatre located at 366 North La Cienega Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. During its heyday in the mid 20th century the theatre was an important art and experimental movie venue, showing the work of people such as Kenneth Anger, Man Ray, Peter Berg, and Richard Vetere.[1][2][3] Over the years its stage has hosted such stars as John Houseman, Charles Laughton, Charlton Heston, James Coburn, George C. Scott, Carol Burnett, Noah Wyle, and Glenn Close.[4]

The Coronet theatre was built in 1947 by Frieda Berkoff of the famous Russian dancing family the Berkoffs,[4] and thrived until June 2, 2008 when it was bought on by Mark Flanagan, the owner of Los Angeles's Club Largo. Flanagan moved his entire operation to the new location and renamed it Largo at the Coronet.[5] It now operates as a music and comedy club.[6]
