Shrine Auditorium

The Shrine Auditorium and its adjoining Shrine Expo Center were designed by architects John C. Austin and Abram M. Edelman with interiors by noted theatre architect G. Albert Lansburgh in a Moorish Revival style. When it opened in 1926 with over 6,700 seats, the Shrine was the largest theatre in the United States. It is still the largest proscenium arch stage in North America.

Breed Street Shul

Reminiscent of Eastern European synagogues, the Breed Street Shul was the religious and cultural anchor of the Eastside's early Jewish community.
