i live not far from this historic theater. i grew up in echo park (Los Angeles) but remember that theater well. someone mentioned another theater further down whittier blvd. that would be the garmar theater in montebello, also closed down. today – may 2010 the garmar is now a bank; sprctrum bank but it too is a local community landmark. i believe the community must rise up like in the days of old to restore these iconic places like the golden gate and put them to good use.
