Start your Los Angeles area historic theatre explorations by heading to one of these major sections:
| Downtown | Hollywood | Westside | Westwood/Brentwood | Santa Monica | [more] L.A. Movie Palaces |
To see what's recently been added to the mix visit the Theatres in Movies site and the Los Angeles Theatres Facebook page.

The Strand Theatre and The Pike From The Water

A great view of the Long Beach Pike popped up recently on Vintage Los Angeles. Click on it to get to a full size view on Facebook.

It's after 1929, because we see the Ocean Center Building (along with the State Theatre) on the right. Look at the oil well structures on the ridge line beyond downtown!

What I was mostly interested in was the Strand Theatre in the middle.

Behind the roller coaster you can see (from left to right) the big arched roof of the roller rink (later the Majestic Ballroom), then the Strand (a bit of the facade, the roof line and the stagehouse) and then the Roman columns of the Bathhouse.

This great photo (and lots more) are featured on the Strand Theatre page.
