Don’t miss “A Rose for Lilly”—a tribute to the Hall’s first ever donor! Fun fact: the movie “Her”, about a lonely man named Theodore who falls in love with his computer, had a date scene filmed here at Walt Disney Concert Hall—with “A Rose for Lilly” prominently displayed!
For those inclined to classical music, and even those who aren’t, it is a must to see and listen to the world-class Los Angeles Philharmonic (or just LA Phil for short) that performs at Walt Disney Concert Hall. The best of the best, they put on grandiose shows with remarkable acoustics–and best of all, the shows won’t break the wallet thanks to special pricing on Casual Fridays (with free beer and mingling afterward for those of age!), day-of tickets, and other special offers such as group deals.
The Walt Disney Concert Hall is a gem of Downtown LA and is a must-visit for not only visitors but also locals; it’s a venue that more than does justice for Mr. Walt Disney himself.
