that just put a smile on my face.in the late 80s the building was gray.thanks for posting.
hainsthisway,you mentioned leo deli.there was an appliance/thrift store in that area called leos,i forgot what cross street it was on but it was right on the corner and my dad knew the owner pretty well,its not there anymore but do you know if its the same owner who just got out of making sandwhiches and started selling stoves?
well when i said closed down i meant torn down im a uni grad c/o 01 lol but its good to see a fellow warrior!i went to the picfair once when it was a theatre it showed a indian cartoon from what i remember it wasnt that good,but that was around 86 or 87,around 88 the appliciance store opened up and we bought a stove from there.you mention the carthay..i went to that school and i use to hang out on the theater site and wondered why was that ugly building there.i miss la too you may be in simi valley but im in DALLAS!
i always thought that was an odd looking restaurant,but i think that when they built it they had the sears shoppers as customers,but i see why it got closed.
im sure it can be restored no matter what.and you gotta see it from a “big picture” point of view,like it or not that area is coming up,i call it “the white flight of the yuppies”,10 15 years ago melrose was the place to live,now everyone is getting smart and moving south and east because its more affordable.now with parking..who needs cars when you have the subway a few short steps away….this would be the first step in getting that area to cater to more people and not just latinos.just wait and see this is a big step for a great lil community
wow i didnt know it was gone.but really i couldnt see anyone going there if it were to reopen.
i know it said email,but the blue line(mta train) to the 6th street terminal,then get on the red line(subway) to hollywood.
they started contruction on that building around 01 or 02.the lot had been empty for at least 7 years.
when exactly did they stop showing movies there(including indian)?
yea i was on the page today.
it worked fine,thanks haineshisway
it says i need a password?
i remember the picfair well,i was about 13 when they tore it down.but i remember it was a 2 story building and it was grey.the studio across the street from it was called cartyh studios and it was in the same design as the picfair.most of the people on my old street(spaulding ave)have lived there for 45+ yrs,so next time im in la ill ask for some pics.
no the vons was a safeway it turned into a vons around 90 or 91.the picfair was a grey kinda artdeco building,very similar to the studio on the same side of the street.it was right next to the laudry matt,theres a newer brick building there now,but on the other corner(not fairfax)was a shoe repair shop that was there til they tore it down,my mom use to go there alot.so all in all it was on the northwest corner lot.
same here,i went to schools in both areas in the early 90s(cresent hieghts,and carthy elementry)i grew up further south near pico and fairfax(i remember the picfair as an appliance store).
i just saw the pic of the lido,and man that was an awsome looking house.i can see the area not wanting a trader joes there.thats a boarderline neighborhood(super nice on the north with the south carthy south area)and kinda not so good on the south(i.e. the 7-11 going south where alot of apartment buildings are).i wonder how long the mint club has been there.
i dont really think it was an eyesore,i mean it was great to see it when everything around it were shopping malls.another thing that i rememeber were the trees surrounding it.it really was a nice place,its hard to imagine that all thoese tiny houses now occupy the site.
well i know how you feel aerick,im only 25 and its bringing back memories for me too.i almost forgot all about the tower in westwood,but i did find a business card of thiers,and rhino(orig location) in my desk drawer.i was more of a record person than a theatre person,now thats changed though.any of you local guys go to uni (university high school)?
LeComte! thats the street i couldnt think off,but yea its on the east side of the street.im pretty sure its a resturant now though.
from my memory tower was south of the ucla entracne on westwood,i want to say the street was laconte,but im not sure.it had 2 stories,i had sumer school at ucla in 97 and it was still in business.if you were heading to ucla it was on the right hand of the street.
well i can say for sure the tower records closed in the late 90s,its now a italian garden.bullocks left in the early 90s…..
