Coolest Feature: The seats are built on an incline, ensuring there isn't a bad seat in the house
Owned by the city of Los Angeles, the award-winning venue is hidden inside of Griffith Park, the second-largest city park in the state of California. Seating just under 6,000 people, the Greek Theatre was built by Samuel Tilden Norton in 1929 in the image of a Greek temple. Because the seats were built on an incline, patrons are treated with excellent lines of site; there isn't a bad seat in the house. Though it's hardly tiny, the Greek Theatre has been awarded North America's Best Small Outdoor Venue several times and has withstood performances from the likes of Tina Turner, Elton John, The Who, and Alicia Keys. Then, there's the Hollywood factor—remember Get Him to the Greek? This is the Greek that Aaron Green was tasked with getting Aldous Snow to.
