The center was expanded by about 20 percent to 12,817 square feet. The renovation includes a 180-seat theater, complete with a multipurpose space for films, cultural performances and traveling exhibits.
“Several new exhibits highlight simple principles and doctrines in practical ways for us to follow Jesus Christ,” said Mark Lusvardi, director of Church exhibits. “The key component with all our visitors’ centers is the focus on the Savior.”
A new entrance to the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Visitors’ Center in Los Angeles has an all-glass front highlighting the centerpiece, an 11-foot Christus marble statue.
