    The Broadway Theater District in Downtown Los Angeles is the first and largest historic theater district listed on the National Register of Historic Places.



    The evolution of the Beale Street Theater (State Theater) into the Kingman Center for the Arts, Kingman, Arizona began in 1907.



    The Rialto Theatre in South Pasadena, California is considered one of the last single-screen theaters in Southern California and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.



    Piper's Opera House has been a fixture in historic Virginia City, Nevada since 1876.
