The Theme Building is an iconic Space Age structure at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Influenced by "Populuxe" architecture, it is an example of the Mid-century modern design movement later to become known as "Googie". The Airport Theme Building Exterior and Interior was designated as a historic-cultural monument in 1993 by the city.

The distinctive white building resembles a flying saucer that has landed on its four legs. The initial design was created by James Langenheim, of Pereira & Luckman, subsequently taken to fruition by a team of architects and engineers headed by William Pereira and Charles Luckman, that also included Paul Williams and Welton Becket.

The building construction contract was awarded to Robert E. McKee General Contractor Inc. of El Paso, Texas.

The structure was dedicated on June 25, 1961, by Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson.
