The Hitching Post Theatre was located directly across the street from the Pantages Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard.
First a newsreel theatre, known as the Tele-View Theatre, it became the Hitching Post Theatre from January 24, 1941 with Gene Autry in “Melody Ranch” & Roy Rogers in “Robin Hood of the Pecos”. The programing was now devoted to westerns. On November 3, 1949 it was renamed Paris Theatre, becoming an art house and reopening with the West Coast premiere of Stanley Holloway in “Passport to Pimlico”. It was closed by the late-1950’s.
An empty lot replaced it which was utilised as an open plaza in front of the new Hollywood/Vine metro station. In early-2007, construction work began on the site, with a new building that incorporates the metro station entrance.
