Does anyone know who actually owns the theater property now? Why do they ask such astronomical rent? Who could ever make a profit and pay rent like that? Is it just a tax write off? Its a shame to let that theater just rot away there……..

Yes, you’re right about that. A few have shown movies (Lunt-Fontanne/Globe; Warner/Mark Hellinger etc.)

I still think it stinks.

Why are they naming theaters after lawyers now? What happened to playrights, composers or actors? No Ethel Merman, Tennessee Williams, Harold Arlen, Cole Porter. We get Bernard Jacobs? Something is wrong here.

Thanks for the pic. I’d never knew this theater existed!

Ooops! I was thinking of the Embassy. I never knew there was another theater besides the Big Four in Playhouse Square. Wonder how big it was and when it closed? I dont remember newsp. ads for it in the 60’s.

Wasnt the Esquire farther down Euclid by the Hippodrome? I thought it was around E.9th. I’m pretty sure it was across the street from the Hipp or close.

That’s too bad. I never saw the theater when it was open, its been closed for decades. Wasnt there an Arthur Murray Dance studio in the bldg. for many years? I dont know if it was in the theater itself or not. The area is ripe for redevelopment and there isnt a theater nearby for miles………

This has to be the most asinine butchering of a theater I’ve ever read about. Walgreens Cinema.

I actually watched the movie through the shower scene, then went to bed. I didnt realize that featurette was going to be on after or I would’ve taped it! :(

Thanks, but why isnt the Los Angeles theater listed there?

I’m sorry I missed that. Was on too late for me to watch. :(

I’m curious, what other theaters in downtown L.A. have 2 balconies?

I went there a few times in the 70’s when I was home from college in the summer. I think I saw Oh, Lucky Man there. I kept to theaters on the west side as they were closer.

Thanks for clearing that up. I was checking for Minneapolis and saw nothing in the list!

On what network? On a local L.A. Station?

I hope the program will be picked up by some Cable network here. Let us know. I’d love to see the interior of this theater.

Hibi commented about Allen Theatre on Sep 29, 2005 at 12:29 pm

I was in the Allen once, possible several times as a kid in the 60’s but I dont remember much about what it looked like, unfortunately. It was dark and we arrived whenever and sat through the next show until we saw what we missed. I did eat in the Rotunda restaurant once many years later. That was impressive.

Its too bad they had to install a bar in the dome under the balcony. Beautiful.

Can anyone post a listing for the Continent? I dont have any information on it.

Thanks for all the info!

Strange. It seemed much bigger than that. The balcony was always roped off and dark when I was there, so I couldnt get a look at it. Maybe the screen and the high ceiling made it seem bigger capacity-wise.
