No problem. Thanks for posting the photos.

I’ve loaded some photos of the Vogue, the Bruin, the Stadium, and the Lido. Will do more as I get the time. Check ‘em out.

Just a suggestion. If you post the link this way:

View link

We only see the photo and not the rest of your photobucket.

I’ve got other really incredible photos, which I’m going to start linking to – I’ve already put up three of the Lido Theater on Pico and La Cienega, and later tonight I’m doing the Vogue, since I’m quite bored of looking at the photos there, which are all of the run-down decrepit current sad thing it’s become.

I do too. The marquee looks great.

If management feels that the photo is a problem, they will remove it.

I liked the photo, though.

Well, I’d remove the post but there doesn’t seem to be a way to do it. I’ll just use links from now on.

Large graphics can distort the page similar to posting a very long link. Another problem with large embeded graphics is people that have slow or dial-up modems will have to wait a long time for the page to load.

haines: While it’s easy enough for those who know markup code to embed an image in a Cinema Treasures page, it violates the site’s comment policy (fourth bullet point in section one.) As I don’t run the site, I don’t know the reason for the policy- though I surmise it may have something to do with the potential for copyright violations which could lead to legal problems for the site and, to a lesser extent, the problem of overly wide images stretching the pages horizontally, which would lead to a lot of work for the webmasters, removing those comments to restore the damaged pages.

Poor Nick Adams, part of the doomed “Rebel Wihout a Cause” cast, with James Dean, Natalie Wood and Sal Mineo. The only one that didn’t die an unnatural death was Jim Backus.

What??? Of course links are welcome – I was joking. I just didn’t know that you could post an actual photo in the comment box. Are you a cop?

The webmaster needs to comment ASAP on the matter of “stinking links.” Are they no longer welcome at Cinema Treasures?

Links – we don’t need no stinking links :) Apparently, you can post photos right in the comment box – and I’m jiggy with that.

Let’s see if this works – here’s an incredible photo I bought at a memorabilia show a couple of weeks ago – Nick Adams standing in front of the Wiltern Theater, where his name is above the title on the marquee.

Finally, a photo from the good old days, when it was actually a movie theater.

It looked beautiful last night on “The Bachelorette.”

Here is a 2001 shot I took of the Wiltern:

The fact that this theater is now a live venue is in no way upsetting to me, unlike what a previous poster felt. The fact that it still stands, and is in use for the arts, is something I think needs to be embraced by theater/theatre enthusiasts.
