i'm going to ask a simple, naive, and rhetorical question: shouldn't l.a take care of it's old, beautiful, neglected, and dilapidated theaters?
and, to editorialize a bit, shouldn't there be a moratorium on building new theaters until the old and beautiful theaters are looked after and cared for and renovated?
i mean, this theater, the 'los angeles', is a palace.
and scattered throughout l.a, especially downtown, there are other old theaters that are also palaces.
and once they're gone they're gone forever and ever.
here is a link if you want to get involved and help protect and restore l.a's amazing and sadly neglected theaters.
