Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
Architect G. Albert Lansburgh designed the Renaissance Revival style Warner Bros. Hollywood Theatre, which opened in 1928. The office space on the upper floors of the building became the KFWB radio studios, which used the two radio masts on the building's roof. The building has also been known as the Warner Cinerama Theatre and the Pacific Hollywood Theatre. In 1992, the building was designated Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument # 572.
Pedestrians walking along Hollywood Blvd. Seen are various businesses on both sides of the boulevard, including the Pacific Theatre (right, center), and Jack Benny's Walk of Fame star for television (foreground), 6370 Hollywood Blvd., May 1983.
