In addition to Richard’s, this building also housed the Sin-O-Rama Adult Arcade Theatre, at 5531 Hollywood Blvd. (likely little more than a “loop” booth operation).

Prior to being known as the Gershwin, the primary building operated as the St. Francis Hotel; a notorious “flophouse” where James Earl Ray (Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassin) lived for the four months leading up to his crime.
