The Hollywood Palladium- Then and Now

Ok, so this is a little confusing… you see the “now” is actually the same as the “then”, but the other “then” is also “then”! Confused? Let me explain. The World Famous Hollywood Palladium opened in 1940. Sometime in the 1960's they remodeled the outside to look as it does in the first photo (taken 12/25/06). Then between 2007 and 2008 they started the process of once again remodeling (2nd photo- 7/12/08). When they were all done , the Palladium reopened in 2008, having been remodeled to look like it did in 1940 (3rd photo- taken 12/25/09). So as the Palladium stands today, is much like it looked in 1940. Personally, I liked the blue version prior to this recent remodel, but the current version is nice as well. The Palladium is a truely historic building. Located at 6215 Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood, its truely like driving by another era. I often drive that stretch of road just to pass it. You can read a lot more about it HERE [en.wikipedia.org]
