Robert Rodriguez's "Machete" held its Los Angeles premiere at the historic Orpheum Theatre on Wednesday evening, bringing a colorful convoy of lowriders to Broadway.

The vehicles were used to deliver the film's stars to waiting photographers, who lined the sidewalk from 9th street to the theatre.

Northbound traffic on the street was diverted for the occasion, though buses were allowed to continue on their normal route. The street was reopened soon before 9pm.

"Machete" stars Danny Trejo, Robert De Niro and Jessica Alba. It opens on September 3.
