I don't know if anyone else has mentioned this but just for the record, the photo listed under the Fifth Avenue Theatre in Inglewood, California (record# 16201) is not the Fith Avenue. The photo is of the former New Boulevard Theatre (aka Huggy Boy) in East Los Angeles (record# 16071).
About the Fifth Avenue, there are plans to build senior citizen aapartments on the site. Check out the church web site (http://ccfc-s.org/)

The photo included with Mr. Pierce's post is indeed the 5th Avenue Theatre on Manchester Blvd. at 5th Avenue in Inglewood. As I recall it was a Fox house like the nearby newer Academy Theatre. I lived in the neighborhood in the early 1950s and attended both.

Good catch, Mr. Pierce. [Smile]

IT IS HARD TO RECOGNIZE OLD THEATRES AFTER BEING TORN DOWN. HAVING BEEN A FILM PROJECTIONIST 25 YEARS I WOULD LIKE TO NOTE A FACT ABOUT THE FOX FIFTH AVENUE. THIS WAS THE THEATRE WHERE JIM GRAHAM WORKED ABOUT 25 YEARS. JIM WAS THE SOLE INVENTOR OF THE CUE METER. THIS CIRCULAR DEVICE THE SIZE OF A LARGE ALARM CLOCK HAD 2 NEEDLES ALMOST LIKE CLOCK HANDS. YOU SET THEM BASED ON THE FOOTAGE OF EACH REEL AND AN ALARM WOULD GO OFF 1 MINUTE BEFORE THE CHANGEOVER AND THEN JUST BEFORE THE 12 FOOT CUE MARKS ALLOWING THE OPERATOR TO NEVER MISS A CHANGEOVER IN CASE HE WAS DOING SOMETHING AND TIME CREPT BY. I HAVE 2 GOOD PICS OF THE 5TH AVENUE IN MY ONLINE THEATRE COLLECTION FOR L.A. THEATRES. JOHN D. LOCAL 150-IATSE-RETIRED.

John Dodge: It isn't as though Ron is jumping on you for nothing nor does anyone want to hurt your feelings, but you should know that using only CAPITALS (upper case) to write messages is called "SHOUTING" in the parlance of those who use the Net, and is annoying to readers. You will notice a light on your keyboard labeled 'Caps Lock' or sometimes only 'A' to signify that the Caps Lock key had been depressed to turn on only caps (capital letters). If you press your Caps Lock key again, it will turn off this light and the all caps that your text appears in, from then on. It is just a matter of courtesy to your readers. We do enjoy your posts, so do keep them from shouting, please.

By the way, if your caps lock key keeps on getting hit accidentally, as it does for me, then on many computers you can cause it sound a special beep when it turns on, and another type of beep when it turns off. This is handled by one of your settings called something like Sounds or the like. Simply check the box that permits such a sound, and it will all be easier for you from then on.

Getting back on topic before someone [Wink] removes the post, the "photo" shown looks more like a realist style water color than it does a photo. What book did you get that from?

Well the Fifth Ave Theatre sits on the north side of the street on one of those picture (no pun) days during the afternoon in Southern California. I've taken many shots of local theatres that have came out that nice.

Well guys and gals, the pics on the 5th Avenue Theatre listing come from my collection, so I must have sent them to Adam incorrectly labled. Please accept my apologies.

They need to be changed Adam>>>if you could please re-locate them to the Boulevard Theatre, East Los Angeles. I will send you correct pics of the 5th Avenue Theatre, Inglewood. Thanks
