Wow. That’s only $19,900 less than the asking price. So perhaps they just want to break even, in the hopes a developer will bring it back.

Apparently still standing and for sale. This realtor’s listing was updated in July. Photo I believe is from 2017.

The Google street view has not been updated since 2012, so it still shows the boarded up Ambassador Theatre.

DavidZornig commented about Banner Theatre exterior on Aug 1, 2018 at 3:38 am

A BANNER AT THE BANNER – Men look at still photographs and lobby cards on display outside the Banner Theatre, located at 458 S. Main Street in Los Angeles.

Overhead is a banner touting a film of the Joe Louis-Jim Braddock world championship fight which took place on June 22, 1937. Braddock knocked the “Brown Bomber” down in the first round, but ultimately was knocked out by Louis in the 8th.

Not as I can see. Their website just reads “Coming Soon” on a black screen, and their Facebook page has been inactive since May when it was advertising the Patio Theatre’s events.

I believe this may have originally been the Princess Theatre. I posted a 1930 photo of the Princess Theatre on 9th Street with the Acme Garage next door. Photo is part of the M.S. George Collection

Wider, crisper version of the 1945 photo added, which when enlarged separate from CT shows “J.C. Hill-1929” on the rectangular stone in the brick work in the upper left hand corner. Which coincides with the above comment.
