The marquee outside of this old Glendale theater is a pretty fantastic art deco column. But the coolest feature is once you walk past the ticket booth and find yourself not inside a theater, but an outdoor courtyard facing a neoclassical temple. Inside, the auditorium isn't quite as stunning—nor is the programming always—but it's a surprisingly intimate space with some cool architectural details.
