Christopher Nolan's "The Prestige" (Touchstone/Warner Bros, 2006) with Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman and Michael Caine is set in Edwardian London. Also in the film are Piper Perabo, Rebecca Hall and Scarlett Johanssen. In this tale of two magicians trying to top each other with the ultimate illusion we get many theatre shots.
We see lots of the interior of the Los Angeles Theatre including this view above with theatregoers heading up the stairs in the grand lobby. The Los Angeles is used for the performance of "The Transported Man" trick done by The Great Danton" (Hugh Jackman).
A look toward the stage at the Los Angeles.
Another main floor view at the Los Angeles from the rear of the house.
Jackman reappearing on the edge of the 1st balcony. See our many pages on the Los Angeles Theatre for photos and a history of this movie palace. It's a design by S. Charles Lee, opened in 1931.
Most of the exterior shots in "The Prestige" were done on the Warner Bros. backlot. One of the facades of a real theatre that we do see is the Tower Theatre, dressed up as the London Pantages. London, of course, never had a Pantages Theatre, but perhaps it should have.
The Tower, at 802 S. Broadway, is a 1927 film house designed by S. Charles Lee. See our many Tower Theatre pages for more about the building.
A performance by "The Professor" (Christian Bale) at the London Pantages. It's actually the Palace Theatre, 630 S. Broadway. We get several scenes here.
The Palace, a 1911 vintage two-balcony vaudeville house, still hosts legit shows, concerts and an occasional film screening. See our Palace Theatre pages for more about the theatre.
We get several interior views of the Belasco Theatre. It's functioning as the (very cluttered) workshop for the final illusion of "The Great Danton" in the battle between the rival magicians. Here we're on the main floor looking back at the front of the balcony.
Another shot on the Belasco's main floor, this time giving a look at the theatre's unique ceiling. They've draped the front of the projection booth.
Michael Caine is taking a peek in from one of the balcony exits to try to figure out what Jackman is up to in his workshop.
See our pages on the Belasco Theatre for a history of this 1926 legit house as well as many photos. It's at 1050 S. Hill St., right next to the Mayan Theatre.
