El Cid Legacy
El Cid was built around 1900 by D. W. Griffith. It was used to screen his controversial and famous movie "Birth of a Nation," which opened in 1915 and was the first twelve reel motion picture to set an all time box office record. For 11 years it was viewed by more than 100 million Americans at the high ticket price of $2.00!

Late in 1950 the building was converted into a mini-theatre and cabaret called the "Cabaret Concert Theatre," which credits include "The Black Pipe," "Jail House," and "The Drunkard." It became famous as a hand-out for many well known actors and actresses.

In 1961 El Cid Restaurant was born, and the building was converted into an authentic replica of a 16th century spanish tavern, from its exterior courtyard of flowering gardens, fountains, and patios to its high wood beam ceiling and colorful antique bricks, it forms an unusual backdrop to the exciting picturesque dinner shows which feature the finest flamenco dancers, singers, and guitarists on an intimate stage.

El Cid offers a romantic blend of dining, history, and entertainment that is unique, mystic, and beautiful - hidden in the heart of Hollywood.

With a history of great entertainment and a new variety of late night and dinner shows to choose from, El Cid is known today as a landmark of Hollywood.
