I'd liked the mural that was on the top of the facade of the Regent Theatre on Main St. in 2008 but hadn't known until recently that it was the work of Ed Fuentes, of [ view ] from a loft blog and photo fame.
Prompted by a recent glimpse of the Regent in a shot from the 1974 film "Uptown Saturday Night," I recently added several new items to the page on the Regent Theatre.
Here you see one by Mr. Fuentes himself of the Regent from up high across the street. Yup, that's the mural were looking at. It was sad to see it go. You can click on the image to go to the full size view on Flickr.
Also new on the page is desolate (probably 90s) view posted by Kenneth McIntyre on Vintage Los Angeles.
