I don’t recall if it was Belfast Water or not, but it could very well be. Did it look anything like the following – View link – Seems like the Neon was blue and the second hand had a small crescent on the end of it. The photo of the outside makes the theatre seem so much smaller than I recall, but I was much smaller myself. Prior to going to the Palms, my brothers and I used to go to the FOX Venice (when we lived in Venice). After moving to Culver City, we went either to the Culver or the Meralta depending on what was playing there. Sad to see that they are all gone now, but that’s how it goes.
My brothers and I used to see movies at the Palms in the late 50’s and 60’s. I think the last movie we ever saw there was the original version of “The Time Machine”. I can’t recall anything about the inside of the theatre except the neon clock over the exit just to the left of the screen. Seems like it was always raining every time the movie was over. The photo seems unfamiliar although everthing has changed since that time.
