 For a movie about a cat, we see quite a few theatres in Peter Atencio's "Keanu" (Warner Bros. / New Line Cinema, 2016).  After escaping from a drug-related shootout in Boyle Heights our eponymous cat checks out the L.A. River, walks across one of the bridges and is seen here strolling on Broadway. That's the Los Angeles Theatre, 615 S. Broadway, in the distance on the right of the frame.

 Keanu crosses Broadway at 6th St.

Another frame showing a bit more of the Palace Theatre, 630 S. Broadway. 

 Keanu finds a home with  Jordan Peele. Later he and Keegan-Michael Key go to some Liam Neeson film and as they head out onto Sunset, we get a look at the Cinerama Dome.

It's a long story but the cat gets stolen and they fall in with some drug dealers in an attempt to get it back. Turns out they like the cat too and don't want to give it up. Here our duo is heading up into the Hollywood Hills to deliver drugs to a party. On the left is the dark marquee of the Vine Theatre, 6321 Hollywood Blvd. In the distance we get a bit of the vertical of the Pantages, 6233 Hollywood Blvd.

For more information about these theatres, see the pages on the Los Angeles Theatres site about the Los Angeles Theatre, the Palace Theatre, the Cinerama Dome, the Vine Theatre and the Pantages.
