I recently was shown a photo of the Centre when it was new, and originally it had a two-sided readerboard which hung out over the sidewalk. Above it was a neon vertical sign, in the shape of an arrow pointing downward and toward the building. This whole assembly was mounted on the ribbed concrete “fin” on the Left edge of the facade, visible in the above color photo I took in 1982.

That image in the above post is the same image shown in black and white at the top of this page. I posted it in the early days of Cinematreasures on behalf of Jack Tillmany. It’s from his collection. How it got on Classic American Images is anyone’s guess.
