The Actors’ Gang theater company resides in the Ivy Substation at the corner of Venice Blvd and Culver Blvd in Culver City.

The Ivy Substation, home to The Actors’ Gang, is listed on the National Historic Register of Historic Places as the Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument No. 182. It is a single story rectangular shaped building in the Mission Revival style. Built in 1907 as a traction substation by Los Angeles Pacific Railway. In the 1990s, the building was renovated to use as a community theater.

The theater opens up onto Media Park, a community park serving the residents of Culver City.
