The letters spelling out “Globe” have been removed from the marquee out front but the globe itself remains. Possibly the current club owners had something to do with this. Conversely, the removal of the letters makes it much easier to see “Morosco Theater” printed on the masonry directly above the marquee.
I’m more than willing to check various libraries to plumb their city directories and find out exact addresses for these Southern California theatres. In fact, that’s what I’ve been doing recently – there are so many more theatres in that area that haven’t been put into this site. For example, the theatres in the Broadway area of Los Angeles (nearer to South Central) have been mostly converted to various houses of worship. At least the buildings themselves haven’t been torn down…
The marquee of this theatre can be seen in the early half of “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure”, with the program “Cartoon Cavalcade” showing.
