LOS ANGELES, CA — LA Downtown News reported that the United Artists Theatre sold to an undisclosed buyer. Rumors are that the building might be developed into a hotel but nothing is set in stone at this point.

After Gene Scott’s church bought the United Artists, the group beautifully renovated this movie palace.
This is wonderful news for the Broadway district! There’s nothing better than a hotel with a theater. When living in the L.A. area a decade ago, it was like trying to get into Fort Knox. When this place was a church, the “Mafia-looking guard” at the front door, firmly refused admittance if you did not have a reservation for the Sunday service.
