In recent years the former Tujunga Theatre was used as a nightclub. Today, it is a banquet hall, with most of the facade removed.

That preservationist website made my head hurt.

Here is photographic evidence of an earlier theatre in the Tujunga area.

6719-6723 Foothill Blvd is now a nightclub called Caesar’s.

Thank you, LM. My friends and I guessed nightclub because of the sheer size of the place. There are some subtle details that seem to point at this building’s theatrical origins, like a shape out front that looks remarkably like a marquee. Also, the building looks like it heads underground at the far end (to slope the floor for seating?), and there are escape exits at the ends with ramps that come back up to ground level.

Otherwise, you’d never guess that this had been a theater.

But I don’t know if any of that opulence is from the theater. Official word — it’s a banquet hall!

The banquet hall on the Google photo doesn’t match the 1982 photo at all.

As Knatcal noted above, the entire facade was removed. A few bones show through, like the position of the doors and the frame of the marquee. But yes, they’ve remodeled the heck out of this place.
