Nokia Out, ‘Microsoft Theater’ In At LA Live

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The Nokia Theater is no more.

Officials unveiled new signage Tuesday for the Microsoft Theater at the 7,100-seat concert and special events venue at L.A. Live. It’s all part of an effort to rebrand the dining and entertainment hub’s 40,000-square-foot outdoor plaza into “Microsoft Square”.

The theater, formerly known as Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE, opened in Oct. 2007 and has hosted more than 3.5 million guests attending over 700 concerts, family shows, product launches, conventions, special events and annual awards shows, including the Primetime EMMY Awards, ESPY Awards, BET Awards, American Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards, MTV Video Music Awards and others.

A memorial held for late Lakers owner Jerry Buss was also held at the theater in 2013.
