Highland Theatre Cameo In “The Singing Detective”

LOS ANGELES, CA — Keith Gordon’s 2003 theatrically released (and beautifully photographed) remake of the mid-1980s British television production “The Singing Detective” contains a brief night shot of the south side wall and the lighted rooftop marquee of the Highland Theatre in the Highland Park district of Los Angeles.

The view is from a side street across Figueroa Street from the theatre, and the front of the building is obscured, but the bright lights of the rooftop sign are a splendidly evocative sight standing out in the mostly dark scene, perfect for the Noir atmosphere of the movie.
