Its been around for 85 years now and still going strong!!
This wonderful theater first opened its doors 83 years ago today !!
That phrase was from architect S Charles Lee out here in Los Angeles.
The Commerce Theater opened its doors in 1977!!
Your like 22 years too late with info already outdated !!
They didn’t give any credit to theater architect G. Albert Lansburgh!
The exterior of this theater has not changed much in the last 45 years yet there is 22 views of the same exterior! Just wondering why…
Here in Downtown Los Angeles, there is the most exotic Mayan Theater which now a nightclub. Opened in August, 1927.
You posted the same photo Dec 29!!
It is one of the three most completely intact of the theaters of South Broadway along with the Los Angeles and Orpheum palaces.
There are a couple of them missing from the balcony level perches. Look at old theater photographs to see what was once there…
Get over it. The theater’s been gone over forty years now. Case Closed!!
It’s been gone a long 38 years !!
This photo belongs to the Hollywood Pantages photos as it is the upstairs mezzanine hallway outside the upper balcony.
The close-up figure sure can pass for a young Rosalind Russell!!
78 Years Old Today And Still Going Strong!!
81 Years Old And Still Going Strong !!!!
What is going up next door to the theater?
Its such a damn shame that they chose to tear down this theater/office building after a mere 40 years!! Yet, the Warner Bros. Downtown theater/office building at 7th & Hill and the Loew’s State theater/office building at 7th & Broadway are still around after more than 80 years…
How many recent views can you possible show?
On This Date, April 26, 1928, 80 Years Ago Today, The Warner Bros. Hollywood Theater Opened Its Doors For Business.
I have that article from the 1970s Westways mentioned earlier. Will
have to look it up sometime.
At least we have our beautiful St. Sophia Cathedral at Pico & Normandie thanks to Charles Skouras, who is buried on the church grounds in a mausaleum.
I’m wondering if those are the original wooden entrance doors or if they were replaced at some earlier time?
Correction: The Tower Theater was designed by S. Charles Lee and S. Tilden Norton, not Lewis A. Smith.
