I forgot to mention the ficus trees will be replaced by Mexican fan palms.

Good news for anyone who cares about the tree issue. All of the ficus trees along the boulevard will be removed as of 2011, per The Hollywood Entertainment District. The facades and marquees currently obscured by those awful trees will be revealed and further damage to the sidewalks will be prevented. That’s great news.

I think Artie might be thinking of the Ritz Theatre across the street. During that time Mann Theatres operated the theatre and ran regular Hollywood feature films.

Work has started again on this place. All of the front doors have been removed and there’s a big gaping whole into the building. The wreck of a lobby seems to have been painted all black at some point. The outer lobby is a mess. Not sure if this is the original nightclub project starting up again or a conversion to a restaurant or retail.

Theatre showed XXX flicks in the mid-80S.

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?

Here is the Vogue and the tree, taken yesterday:

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.

William on December 19, 2008 at 3:30 pm

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.

William on December 19, 2008 at 2:55 pm

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.

Here is the photograph I mentioned in my 9/23/08 post:

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