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.
