Larchmont Theater, Los Angeles, showing “It Happened One Night” (1934)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.
You know, from back in the day when we ate bread and didn’t feel guilty about it.

    Hi – we lived close to Larchmont Blvd. from 1958-1963 & that is where I did my shopping. The first Jurgensen’s was located on Larchmont & it was great.

    This is (or was) such a pretty area. I used to enjoy driving up and down Larchmont on my lunch hour when I was temping at Paramount in the ’80s.

    Here’s a bunch of Larchmont Blvd. pics:
