Operating in 1950 and possibly earlier – here’s a pretty picture of it when it was the Palm: View link

Shouldn’t this be listed under Hollywood, not Los Angeles?

It took me a long time to track anything about it, too.

Not a strip mall. A house.

Shouldn’t this be listed as an East Los Angeles theatre?

A live concert venue in the ‘60s located at 8849 Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood. Currently home to Panini Pizza, across the street from the Viper Room.

There’s a small building at this address, but without a closer look, it’s still a mystery.

Actually, the jeans stores are to the left and right of this address. 547 S. Broadway is now Sassy Perfume. I wonder if they carry “hot butter” fragrance.

Very likely at the spot where the Tacos Gavilan building sits next to Fernando’s Lumber.

It’s either the Quality Cafe building or the violin shop building.

Nice to see Star Pants Mfrs. is still in business. It makes it easier to pinpoint the theatre’s location, anyway.

MagicLantern commented about Joy Theatre on Jul 5, 2010 at 4:33 pm

Shouldn’t this theatre’s city be changed to East Los Angeles?

MagicLantern commented about Georgia Theater on Jul 5, 2010 at 4:15 pm

The GoogleMaps pointer directs to a residential area not in the 90015 area of Los Angeles. At any rate, the theatre has been torn down and replaced by a pharmacy.

Doug’s Furniture Store is currently at 2415 – could be the theatre building.
