Zip code on this should be 91106, not 91101. Well, 91106-2310 to be precise, but you get the gist.

There’s a nice old photograph of the Esquire at the very back of Canter’s if you want to know what it looked like. Canter’s kept the structure of the marquee, and you can still see where the ticket booth use to be, even though it’s now bricked up completely.

This theatre is in the process of being demolished, as is the entire block of business of which it once formed a major part.

Very, VERY sad.
