I am a new member to this site. I worked as a Film Projectionist for Local 150 for 25 years. Being semi-disabled I spend time on the PC finding sites which show theatres I worked. I have created personal files with photos of over 150 theatres which i worked. I cannot find pictures of several theatres I worked in Beverly Hills. I need help finding the STANLEY WARNER'S BEVERLY, LOEW'S BEVERLY, the BEVERLY CANON and the MUSIC HALL. I also need the FOX VAN NUYS and the CANOGA DRIVE-IN in Canoga Park. I would appreciate help in finding these 6 theatres Thanks, JOHN D.

Hi John

The Vagabond Theatre is no where near Beverly Hills, its down near the old Westlake Theatre. Its one block west of MacArthur Park on Wilshire Blvd.
I worked for Local 150 and worked the Warner Beverly Hills and the Music Hall and Vagabond Theatres.

MR.GABEL: I PROBABLY GOT THE VAGABOND CONFUSED IN MY MIND. PERHAPS, I WAS THINKING IT WAS NEAR THE FINE ARTS AT LA CIENEGA WHICH I UNDERSTAND CLOSED RECENTLY. I NOW REMEMBER THAT IT WAS A LITTLE HOUSE ACROSS FROM A BIG HOTEL NEAR WESTLAKE PARK. THE THEATRE CHANGED NAMES DECADES AGO. I WORKED THERE IN 1969 BRIEFLY AND I BELIEVE THE NAME HAD ALREADY CHANGED. WERE YOU AN OPERATOR IN LOCAL 150? IF SO, WHEN? JOHN D.

Is this it? At 400 seats it was probably just right for and art house. Photo from May 11, 2003.
