DOes anyone remember, was it the Boulevard or the Center where the Beatles' “A Hard Day’s Night” was first shown in East LA?

True, Huggy Bear is still visible. It used to be the place of the Huggy Bear Show by radio station KRLA. I went there in the 70s. It was like American Bandstand.

In the above post about Albert C. Martin being the architect is for the Boulevard Theatre (1925) in Los Angeles. Not the Boulevard Theatre (1937) in East Los Angeles.

Additionally, my notes indicate that Albert C. Martin was the architect (1925).

This theatre still operates as a church (the organist told me it had been so for the last few years). It seems to have the original seats (aged leather, flips up and down and that’s it). Inexplicably, where “Boulevard” should be spelled out on the marquee outside, it displays the phrase “HUGGY BEAR”(!).
