What about the Strand Theater on the Atlantic City boardwalk? It was near the Virginia Theater by the Steel Pier.

I took a girl to the bowling alley on this site in junior high school. I think that was my first real date. The facade is still there, as far as I know.

I live in the condos on this site. There is a Food4Less directly behind us that takes up quite a bit of acreage. I am wondering if the drive-in was actually on the supermarket property and not on the condo property, which is about a block north of Vermont and Sepulveda. Any info would be appreciated.

I moved to Harbor City in 1994, and used to drive past the Vermont almost every day. It was showing second run films towards the end of its life, with not too many patrons as far as I could see.

I have seen this theater many times in my travels through downtown Los Angeles. Given the current renaissance, such as it is, I would like to see some use made of this interesting property.

I moved to Los Angeles in 1984. I saw a screening of the film “Streetwise” at the Fox Venice in 1985, which was a film about homeless teens in Seattle. I think the theater closed not too long after that.

I have seen the 1964 picture on the LA Public Library website. It’s too bad that there are no pictures of this interesting little theater in its better days.

I believe that this theater was showing Spanish language films in its last incarnation before being demolished in 1987.
