Linwood Dunn Theater

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Linwood Dunn Theater was opened in 2003, and is the second location on the West Coast for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Located in the Pickford Center, which I believe at one time was part of a studio building in which Mary Pickford was associated back in the 1920’s.

The Linwood Dunn Theater has screenings for members of AMPAS, and also special screenings and events for members of the general public.

Based on the information on the Academy’s website, the above photo is of the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theatre, not the Linwood Dunn. The Linwood Dunn is considerably smaller and the overall colour scheme is gold.

Pickford Center is located in a building which originally served as offices and studios for the Mutual-Don Lee Broadcasting System’s radio and television network. It was dedicated in 1948, and was designed by Los Angeles architect Claud Beelman.

The complex originally featured four theater-style sound stages which could be used as studios for telecasts with what the television industry rather disturbingly calls live audiences (as opposed, I guess, to audiences of the undead.) Presumably, the Linwood Dunn Theater occupies one of those four studios.

Hollywood Heritage provides this history of the building (but misspells architect’s Beelman’s first name as Claude, a common mistake. He used the spelling Claud.)
