For the person who wondered on what corner the Picfair was located; it was the NW corner of Pico and Fairfrax.
I grew up in the area and saw many great films at the Carthay Circle Theater. It was just behind my grammar school. I can remember catching pollywogs in the little pound in the tiny park just north of the theater where water from the gold minerâ€™s pan spilled out endlessly. Over the years we often celebrated the Jewish High Holidays at local theaters (our synagogue was too small at that time). The theaters we used were the Wilshire (on Wilshire), the Stadium (on Pico) and the Carthay Circle Theater. Seeing the cantor prostrate himself on the massive Carthay Circle Theater and Wilshire stages on Yom Kipper was truly moving/ impressive.
