Building was converted into a small store in the late ‘60s. Art Deco facade still visible.

Hey ChrisB I think you mean the Starland on 2624 N. Broadway.
Daly Theatre was named North Broadway Theatre and now it’s a 99 cents only store. Inside you can see the balcony but it’s away from the street.

Maybe somebody familiar with Lincoln Heights can help clarify an old memory I have. A few times when I was a kid we drove through the neighborhood around Five Points, and somewhere in that area I recall seeing a very old theatre which had been converted into a school supply store. This was in the late 1950’s-early 1960’s, and the place looked as though it hadn’t been used as a theatre for years. I can’t remember which street it was on, but it was close to a main intersection. I don’t know what it’s name had been as a theatre, either, so I don’t know if it is listed at Cinema Treasures or not. I don’t think it was on North Broadway, because I recall the street it was on as being narrower. This vague memory has been nagging me for years, and I’d be happy to know just where this place was.

The Daly was listed in the city directory in 1938:

Advertised as the North Broadway Theater in the LA Times in June 1915. Listed in independent theater ads as the Daly through the 1940s, up to 1947, then it disappears.

Listed simply as the Broadway Theatre in the 1915 City Directory.

The Daly Theatre has been demolished. The L.A. County Assessor’s office says that the store on the corner was built in 1947, and the adjacent building was built in 1968.

Oh, and the name of the street is North Broadway. North is part of the street name in this case, not just a direction. Google got it right on the Street View image, but not on the map.
