Hahahaha Ken, I just read you March post today, and almost bust a gut with the “Vogue and it’s tree” comment!!
That ridiculously placed tree appears to have already been there, although trimmed in the old photos from the 1980’s. But even trimmed, what a RIDICULOUS place to plant a tree!

Is the theater still vacant?

Stupid double posts. That’s what last-second editing does for you.

I should add that the article included before and after photos of both the facade and the auditorium, and it looks as though all of S. Charles Lee’s decoration, except for a bit in the auditorium ceiling, was removed by Drielsma.

Boxoffice Magazine of October 19, 1959, featured an illustrated three-page spread about the Vogue, which had recently reopened after undergoing a $225,000 remodeling, designed by architect J. Arthur Drielsma.

I’d forgotten how the carpet extended all the way to the sidewalk.

They should have just planted palm trees instead. They require less maintenance, and they don’t block signage.

At one time the city did maintain them when I worked the theatres on Hollywood Blvd..

The tress are a nuisance and the city doesn’t maintain them. You can’t see any signage as you drive down Hollywood Blvd. and they are starting to damage the siddwalk as they grow taller and the roots spread.

As I mentioned on some of these Hollywood Blvd Theaters, I don’t understand what kind of strange thinking (or lack thereof) makes someone decide it’s a good idea to plant a tree right in front of a marquee. It makes no sense whatsoever. I love trees, but this is one time I think the ones in question should be cut down. What were they thinking?

The interior is currently being completely gutted and renovated into a nightclub venue (as is the Fox down the street on the south side)

In 99, when I was at El Capitan, I was seeing a girl who rented the Vogue and helped her in the projection booth, besides having worked there in the late 70s. They did film stuff back then.

The marquee is in poor condition and the trees in front of the theatre are growing into it. I wish the tress on Hollywood Blvd would be trimmed back and those if front of the Vogue, Pacific and Vine theatres should be completely removed.

Boy that marquee shot looks so worn out.

Did the Vogue and Hollywood across the street.

Actually the store renovation next door is looking really good. Sad that they removed a part of the marquee but better than the eyesore that it was.

Ficus trees are pretty in the right place but they sure do destroy sidewalks.

Actually, that would be fine….a palm tree in front of a marquee would look more “Hollywood”, and wouldn’t block it if you “have” to have a tree in front of a marquee (which seems silly to begin with)…..

They did not think of what type of tree would be good for the street. The block going west from the Vogue Theatre now has palm trees which goes with the area. The other trees are the type they plant on neighborhood streets.
