I was watching Gone in 60 Seconds today (the original) and noticed the Palace as well as the State during a chase scene in downtown Long Beach. I also saw a theater with a blank marquee on the east side of Ocean Avenue, but I couldn’t identify that theater.

This picture is partially duplicated above, but you get a better shot of the Imperial and the adjacent West Coast (from the LA Library):

There is no entry for the Capitol Theater in Long Beach, as shown in this 1925 picture from the LA Library. Could this theater be listed under another name? The address is 219 E. Seaside Boulevard in Long Beach.

I will do a drive-by the next time I am close to downtown.

This is still the herbal medicine store, with the aforementioned Teatro Broadway sign extant.

Here is a picture, courtesy of the LA Library. The library database says that Crenshaw Boulevard was previously called Angeles Mesa Drive. I did not know this.

OK, thanks.

This is interesting. I don’t see that anyone mentioned a previous incarnation as the Fairfax Theater. If you look at this picture from the LAPL database, the theater takes up about half the block on Fairfax heading up towards Canter’s. If you walk south from Canter’s (today) on the west side of Fairfax, you can see a painted sign advertising an unidentified theater on the side of the building, somewhat below where the free-standing sign is in the picture.
