Check out the newly revised Wikipedia article on this theatre, especially the part about Carol Burnett’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame:

Function should be changed to church. Yesterday I drove by and the word “Pacific” on both sides of the marquee were lit up. It was broad daylight so I could not tell if anything else was on.

I only saw one movie here: Spike Lee’s “Jungle Fever” on opening day (which was the same night as my prom). Place was GINORMOUS! It’s a shame I never returned here when it was operating…then again that ain’t exactly my fault. The theatre switched to 2nd run double features during my years in college when I came home for summer vacation.

I finally figured out that this was the theatre with KFWB’s towers on top (still there). There was a smaller building connected/next to the theatre (now a parking lot) that was the actual KFWB studios in the 60’s. Also, Aldo’s Restaurant was under the KFWB building and a big hangout for music industry types in the 60’s (Aldo’s is where Sonny Bono and Cher met in early ‘63). I had been there as a child but just could not remember where it was (as the KFWB building is gone).

From the LA Times in January 1982. Morgan Fairchild was hot, back in the day:

Does anyone know if the Pacific’s marquee lights are ever illuminated?

Here is an interior photo circa 1930s:

There are some nice shots of the Warner and Grauman’s about a minute into this film. Don’t bother watching the rest as they head off in a different direction.

Wow the place looked really great in the 80’s with the movies on the marquee….

Here is the marquee in July 1942:

Sad to walk by this place and see it slowly falling apart. The vertical sign is in really poor condition.

Here is a late 1930s photo from the USC archive:

Great photos in all the Hollywood theaters sections. Thanks.

Is the Pacific a church now? It says on the marquee.

Great pics, always makes me a little homesick.

Ken we must have walked past this place around the same time. I was there having a look around on Oct 18th seeing ‘9 To 5 The Musical’
