I also added a 1975 pic to the Photos Section. Skateboarders lined up in front of the old marquee. Though it’s hard to see,

Photo added.

When the former Liberty Theatre (now Diamond Banquet Hall) at Fullerton and Lawndale was renovated last year, an old sign was briefly revealed—but only a day or two.

Disappointing it was covered up, would have been a nice historic touch for the new business. I believe it’s still under the new tile cladding. Photo and copy credit John Morris.

Just got confirmation the squad car is 1975. The white squads first appeared April of 75. So the Follies was open after74, contrary to the Overview.

Just added a mid 70's photo, with "Deep Throat" on the marquee. So the Overview is incorrect that management refused to play hard-core pornography. Squad car behind the cab puts it around74, but I’m getting confirmation on the year they changed to all white squads.
