There is two shots of the Larchmont Theatre’s marquee in the Images of America “Theatres in Los Angeles” book on pages 50 (1934 “It Happened One Night”) & 51 (1935 “In Dream Too Much”).

There are a few good shots of this theater with a very ornate marquee in a Three Stooges short called Hoi Polloi from 1935. On the marquee it says John Beale in ‘Laddie’, which is an actual movie also from 1935. It’s kind of funny that a Columbia Three Stooges short would show an RKO film on a marquee, unless the companies were connected somehow.

Western Construction Company had made the plans for and would erect this theatre, according to an item in Southwest Builder & Contractor’s issue of September 16, 1921. The project budget was $30,000. A pipe organ was mentioned in the item, but no details about it were given.

This suit states that the Larchmont closed in November 1952. It’s unclear to me if the theater then re-opened and closed at a later date:

The theatre has been demolished. A Blockbuster Video store stands on the spot now.

This theater can be seen in the Ed Wood film “Jail Bait”.
