The traveler's guide Rider's California captured the varied and bustling theater district of 1920s Los Angeles. In 1925, theaters like the Morosco offered live entertainment, while Grauman's Million Dollar Theatre and the Metropolitan showed moving pictures; operatic notes filled the Philharmonic Auditorium and the Orpheum showed some more imaginative acts and billings, like a male impersonator and a former boxing star. (Yes, on the same bill.) [Los Angeles]
