This is an enormous clothing store. I took some photos which I will post later, particularly of the murals. I talked briefly with the manager, who did not believe his building was a movie theater at one time. From there I could walk to the Golden Gate.

It’s not an auto showroom anymore.

The function should be retail.

Here is a 1983 photo. Maybe I should show this to the owner of the building.

Here is a 1981 photo. You can see the top of the Golden Gate theater in the background.

You will also see it briefly in two shots of Whittier boulevard at night, with marquee lights bright and glowing in the film “Boulevard Nights”.

Not only was that retail store once a movie theatre, it was once a movie star.

Yeah, just saw this theater in the 1979 film “Boulevard Nights.” The ese vato younger brother “Chuco” walks right in front of it as he wanders the nightlife of East L.A watching to make sure that “11th Street” don’t put a filero in his back.

Does anyone remember when this theater was called the United Artist the Ua for short. It was a great little theater, not the golden Gate but nice theater.
