david787 commented about El Portal Theatre on Jul 4, 2010 at 5:59 am

I grew up in North Hollywood during the 50’s. The El Portal was my neighborhood theater. I used to love going there on Saturdays. I miss those days so much. Next to it, on the corner was a diner called Albert Sheetz but it closed. On the other side was a department store called Rathbuns. My parents knew the owners. Nearby was the place where my mom and I used to catch the “red car” into downtown LA. It was really an adventure for me

I used to go to the Victory all the time. First with my parents and later with dates. I remember Ludlows, a driving range across the street. It had a pretty decent restaurant. I’ve eaten there many times
