The Golden Gate Theatre is in danger

EAST LOS ANGELES, CA — The Historic Golden Gate Theatre’s proposed future will be that of a “CVS Pharmacy with a drive-thru.” according to plans presented at a community meeting I attended May 6, 2009. Though it was stated that the developers would be sensitive to its historic value, reading the just released response of the LA Conservancy to the Environmental Impact Report, that doesn’t look realistic.

The developers hope to have this project move forward this coming Wednesday by approval of their proposal by the County of Los Angeles. WE NEED TO STOP OR DELAY THIS. WE NEED TO SLOW THIS ROLL. THIS HISTORIC LANDMARK DESERVES BETTER.

Your beautiful memories posted here attest to that. Please “step up” those of you who have posted what the Golden Gate Theatre has meant to you. It has been a family member with fond memories. Remember Her.

Attend the:
Los Angeles County Regional Planning & Commisson Public Hearing
May 13, 2009 Wednesday – 9 am
at the Health Services Auditorium
313 N. Figueroa Los Angeles CA 90012
Your voice and attendance on May 13 will mean much to the history and legacy our Golden Gate Theatre. She deserves as much. We can bring her back to good health and beauty. We don’t need a pharmacy to do that.

I agree. Pharmacies are the new fast food joints.

Its the going trend. We need a shopping center every ¼ mile, with a fast food joint and gas station in between, and the occasional pharmacy or bank stuck in there for good measure. Really really sick.

Here’s an east coaster wishing you all the best of luck in saving the precious Golden Gate Theatre. It’s a shame that so many theatres have been demolished or closed, only to be converted into banks, pharmacies, parking lots, or cheap plazas.
