That’s indeed half of the twinned balcony. Looks to be in pretty good shape too. How much damage is there?

The East mezzanine picture is ½ of the twinned balcony? Or is it the main auditorium? It seems cut off in the middle. The hallway pictures and ceiling fixtures look quite good. I suppose someone is maintaining the theater.

Hi all! I had the opportunity to walk through this great place a few months ago, and I was able to take some pictures. I thought I’d share them: http://www.flickr.com/gp/22721423@N04/H1C91y

Response #1:
Yeah, what’s it worth to you…

Response #2:
Yes, and if I show you, I’ll have to kill you…

Response #3:
In the basement of the Robertson Properties Group on Robertson Blvd. in Beverly Hills, there’s an office that has all the original Warner Hollywood blueprints.

How bad do you want them?

Does anyone have a photo of interior of Pacific 1-2-3 in Hollywood from the early 50’s showing the Cinerama set up.

This is an interesting photo from the USC archive. Paul deLongpre was one of Hollywood’s early residents. Here is house is being demolished while the frame of the Warner theater rises in the background:

Kirk on some TODD-AO installs they placed the screen in front of the smaller stage openings. So that the original stage opening would not be destroyed if the format did not fly. In 1969 the UA Egyptian installed the D-150 screen. They tore out the whole front stage area to place that screen almost to the back wall of the stage house in that theatre. For Cinerama in the Warner Hollywood Theatre they covered the pit and cut the front lip of the stage for the curved screen. If you go behind the screen and look at the front half of the stage you can see the curved cut in the wood.

I would have thought that the front of the Egyptian auditorium would have been destoryed in 1955 when Todd-Ao was installed for “Oklahoma”. D-150 didn’t arrive until the end of the 1960s, so I’m a bit puzzeled. Iknow when I first went to the Egyptian in the 1980s, the wide screen was there. But I assumed it had been in place since ‘55.

If one looks at Google Earth or Google Maps in Satellite or Hybrid mode, is it the building to the immediate east of the main Egyptian auditorium and just north of the eastern side of the parking lot? (and then I will give this thread back to Pacific!!)

They’re not there anymore – if memory serves the buildings were combined and it’s now the Egyptian Arena Theater, a 99 seat waiver house.

The twins were on the Las Palmas side of the property. There were still there the last time I was there.
