Vacant since 1996, this house (referred to in some texts as the Hui Ken International Corp.) may be part of the downtown Los Angeles revival due to Quentin Tarantino’s desire to reopen the theatre and show Chinese and related films. Built in the 1960’s, the Los Angeles Downtown News reports that “the owner will absorb the costs of bringing the structure up to code, and Tarantino will pay for refurbished sound and projection systems.
In addition to the theatre, Tarantino will have access to hundreds of Chinese films, some little-seen classics, that are stored on the property and belong to the theatre’s owner. Tarantino has agreed to catalog them, and restore them if he chooses to screen them.
By early-2009, no progress had been made on begining a restoration, and the building is empty and unused.
