Nokia Theater at L.A. Live!
Los Angeles, CA

As a significant part of downtown Los Angeles' redevelopment effort is the new LA Live! entertainment complex. Anchoring the new LA Live! sports and entertainment district is the Nokia Theater.

Syska Hennessy Group was selected to provide building systems engineering services for the 7,100 seat, 235,000 sf theater. The theater hosts the most popular concerts, performances, awards shows, family shows, corporate showcases, product launches, speaker series and television broadcasts on the newest and largest stage in Los Angeles. This venue offers an intimate setting with no seat being more than 210 ft from the stage with state-of-the-art acoustics and amenities to provide guests exceptional comfort with an unmatched experience.

Under the same ownership of the Kodak Theater, the Nokia Theater offers more space than Hollywood's Kodak Theater. This facility was designed to provide a multi-function space that will lure a variety of events, ranging from Hollywood awards ceremonies, to dance performances, to small scale sporting events. The space also houses a lounge/club venue for party rentals and a private V.I.P. area lounge and entrance.
