Also I would like to add to my first comment. Our class toured The Daily News in January of 1960, I do have a picture of our class on the field trip. And the newspaper clipping they gave to all of us that attended. (Memories) although I can’t even remember the names of my classmates..lol

If anyone wants to see a shot of Van Nuys Blvd. and Sylvan St. from the 1960’s watch the opening sequence of Jerry Lewis' “The Family Jewels”. I remember what a kick it was watching it at the Fox and seeing the theater I was in on the sceeen. Also saw A Hard Day’s Night there and remember girls were screaming in the theater.
Now that was real Beatlemania…..

Remember seeing in the 60’s mostly Doris Day films. Was luxurious to me as a kid, and I remember quite big, even compared with Panorama Theatre where I went all the time and was a separate building. The main entrance and the lobby had a special grandeur to it which was more like the Hollywood cinemas. Nice to see the old postcard with Van Nuys Blvd….those were the days.

I worked in this theater in 1953. I couldn’t stand the uniforms they made us wear, so I quit and worked at the Rivoli where they didn’t have uniforms. A guy named Sloane was the manager and the asst’s name was Allsop. Not a fun job.

Minimum wage in those days…$0.65 per hour
