For the record, I just signed a lease for this building. The gentleman that owned Safelite Glass is still the owner. The most interesting unique original features remaining exist upstairs at the front of the building. There’s an (original?) mezzanine area consisting of approximately 900 sqr feet. The doors, handles, trims, windows, flooring, and the old electrical box/panel are all original or very vintage. There’s even a large window type feature with a barn door that opens and allows you to look over the theater area. The concrete outside the front door is still stamped Sunset Theater. The walls have art deco shaped insets in places still, and some of the red theater carpet can still be found leading upstairs. I’m going to do my best to learn as much as I can about the history of the building and preserve any and all original details possible during my tenancy.

This is no longer the glass shop. It’s a home decor store called Posh Home.

In the 80’s it was a Safelite Glass store.I was in the bldg quite a few times.The original parts that were left from theater days were the quaint restrooms.A few other little touches were there if you looked hard.The auditorium area was really GUTTED.Trucks could come in the rear entrance.The outside still looked like a theater.
