History of the American Legion

Hall Rentals

Hall has 55 ft ceiling!The Hollywood American Legion Hall is a wonderful mid-size venue, with classic art deco architecture mixed with an historic military motif. The stage in the hall is small and intimate and the general admission set up allows you to be as close as you want to the action. This is a great venue to see your favorite artists up close and personal. The Hall has a rich heritage as an American Legion Post, but also has been a favorite haunt of local artists and politicians. Humphrey Bogart was often seen (and heard!) in the basement bar, and many films and television commercials are filmed here. The small and intimate atmosphere of this venue makes this a great place to enjoy a show. There is a collection of military memorabilia to peruse while you enjoy a drink in the foyer, and don't forget to slip downstairs to the bar for a roaring 20's style club. Learn More...
