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?

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.

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

Great photos in all the Hollywood theaters sections. Thanks.

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

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’
