For most of us, the movies from Hollywood’s golden era are just something we watch on TV and it can be easy to forget that for a different generation, these were the movies they got dressed up for and went out to see. I always like seeing how classic movies were presented in their original form. This is the Larchmont Theater, which stood at 149 North Larchmont Blvd, just south of Paramount studios. It’s playing “It Happened One Night” so this 1934. I love the huge standee of Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert on the right and can’t help but wonder if anybody asked the theater manager for it once the movie finished its run.
Below is a photo, circa late 1920s. I think all those vehicle belonged to a bakery.
You know, from back in the day when our bread was delivered.
