Glendale Theatres : The Sands and the Temple

I've been wallowing around in the archives looking for more photos to add to the Glendale Theatres section of the website and have about hit bottom. If there's anything in your attic, send it along.

I just put together a page on the Temple Theatre, a main floor venue in the Masonic Temple building on Brand Blvd.

The photo here is a wonderful Dick Whittington view from 1938. We're looking north on Brand Blvd. and the Temple Theatre (10 cents - any seat - any time) looks better than it ever would again. A click on the photo will take you to the full size view at the USC Archives.

There's also a new page up on the Sands Theatre, just down the block from the Temple. When Pacific Theatres was running both houses in the 80s, they were known as the Regency One and Regency Two.

The Glendale explorations get finished off with a couple of vintage views of a 1938 building, the Glendale Civic Auditorium.
