I don’t believe this is the Los Angeles Orpheum. The marquee never looked like this and the shops are not the right ones next door for any year. check here

not sure why it isn’t a link so try 2

The Museum of Neon Art needs your help! You can help us with our fundraising campaign to restore one of the Dragons from the marquee, from back when it was Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. It is a wonderful historic Hollywood icon and it graced the theatre for 43 years. It was removed in 2001 and placed into storage. Click on the link to watch the video and learn all about the history & the future of this 40' marquee dragon. Hope you can contribute even a small amount. Thank you!

More good news about the theatre owner:

MJuggler commented about Fonda Theatre on Jan 6, 2012 at 6:21 pm

Just read that it is closed!

MJuggler commented about Westlake Theatre on Jan 6, 2012 at 6:20 pm

Currently the swap meet is no longer there, BUT no work is being done either. Wonder what is up?

MJuggler commented about Million Dollar Theatre on Dec 16, 2011 at 9:49 pm

Here is the list of new movies!

Howard: the balcony has not been opened yet. Management told me that the floor really needs work and is only opened for very large groups. (over 1,000) As far as the curtains go, no I am sorry, we do not us them, but they are manually done and we don’t have the staff. But that is something to think about.

hollywood90038: Thanks! You got lucky and came to the only show that had a Q&A, Superman. That was scheduled only 2 or 3 days before the event.

Thanks to everyone who have been coming out to the movies on Wednesday nights! Some of you return each week. Please tell your friends!

I (Michelle) am with the Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation ( and am helping the Million Dollar Theatre and UCLA Film & TV Archives with the Wed. night movies by getting them volunteers to run the shows each time. There has been low attendance but we have hopes that the new movies for Jan, Feb & March will get more folks out to see movies on historic Broadway. Always @ 7:30 every Wed. night $10 double features.

New list of movies is getting finished up right now! But getting apx 26 movies lined up form the Studios is quite the undertaking. All will be CLEAN 35mm prints. I’ve over heard some say “that was the best print of the movie I have ever watched”.

See you at the movies! Michelle

dtrigubetz, BTW it was the Palace Theatre not Rialto and it was it’s 100th Birthday! The Rialto is a reck right now.

I so wish I knew why we can’t get the LRS crowds for the movies. The LAConservancy has told their membership about it in their online newsletter. They even passes out the flyers at their Sat. Theatre tour and @ their Holiday movie last Sunday but only a handle full have said they have come from them. We (the LAHTF) have taken flyers around to area businesses an attendance did increase from 70’s to 100 but more would help pay for the lights being on and other expenses such as the projectionist (Tom, great guy!). If you have any ideas on how to get people to come to Broadway that doesn’t cost much (free even better) please let us know! lahistorictheatrefoundation @

MJuggler commented about Globe Theatre on Sep 7, 2011 at 9:41 pm

just call what WAS my contact @ the Globe/Morosco Theatre/Club 740 to find out that they no longer work there and that 2 months ago the owner sold the place to someone! No idea to whom yet but I will look into the public records for that.

Important Q’s is what will become of the theatre?

MJuggler commented about Fox Redondo Theatre on Jul 5, 2011 at 10:41 pm

just found some old photos from 1942 on flickr: very cool!

MJuggler commented about Palace Theatre on Jun 30, 2011 at 7:36 pm

Was in the theater on June 26th, it’s 100 birthday! Saw a 3 day old print of “ Sunset Blvd” 3 times! Was working as head usher for the reopening/birthday event. WOW, what a great day to see it back it working order. new seats, new carpet, new wallpaper, fresh coats of paint and oil on wood. She is ready for her next life, a multi purpose venue. Only 1030 Seat now out of the 2200 that she had before but that’s enough. I would love to have a variety show there, jugglers & other performers then a short film. Maybe someday!
