Theater Wall Murals
This collection of theater wall murals pays tribute to America’s rich legacy of theater as an important medium of entertainment, creative expression and social communication. Comprising of a mix of black and white and full color photographs of historical, modern and renovated theaters, the wallpaper mural collection takes you through the American theater timeline and transports you to some of the earliest, landmark theatrical venues in the country.
Take for instance the stunningly crisp black and white photograph of the Pantages Theater. This palatial art deco theater in Hollywood opened in 1930 as part of the Pantages Theatre Circuit. It closed as a movie theater in 1977 only to reopen for stage productions, music concerts and other events. Today, it is one of LA’s most popular and prominent venues for live theater. The wallpaper mural captures the scene outside this historic theater on the night of the Academy Awards in 1958. The mural brims with character and history and would make a great addition to your collection of photo wall murals. Speaking of history, another wallpaper mural in this collection features the iconic Grauman's Chinese Theater located on the historic Hollywood Walk of Fame, during the premier of the movie The Robe in 1953. The exterior of this Chinese theater, known for its grandeur and decor, was designed to resemble a giant, red Chinese pagoda. The theater was declared a historic and cultural landmark in 1968. It has since undergone various restoration projects. After being purchased by TCL Corporation, the theater has been renamed to TCL Chinese Theater. This wallpaper mural featuring the theater’s original name bears a distinctive stamp of authenticity.
