Yesterdays post got me kind of nostalgic for the days when I'd spend a Saturday wandering around Downtown LA searching for every old theater I could find. The Olympic Theater [cinematreasures.org] is located at 313 W. 8th. Street, Los Angeles, CA. This was always one of my favorite signs. Though it looks in rather bad shape here, I'm glad I photographed it when I did, as the marquee was eventually covered with a big “for sale” sign, and last time I drove by, the sign had been painted solid black. Photo taken 3/17/07.
