Get Inside Six of L.A.’s Most Magnificent Old Movie Palaces


If you’re reading this blog, chances are you already know about the incredible collection of movie palaces downtown on Broadway. Perhaps you’ve gone inside during the Los Angeles Conservancy’s Last Remaining Seats summer film series, or perhaps gone salsa dancing at the Mayan, or maybe you did some shopping at Urban Outfitters in the shell of the old Rialto Theater. Well hang on to your popcorn, because six of the theaters will be open this Saturday for the first time in decades. Bringing Back Broadway is hosting “A Day On Broadway,” a day full of tours, lectures, and fun times in cool places. Councilman Jose Huizar’s effort to resurrect the grand old street is celebrating its sixth birthday at the Palace, Million Dollar, Tower, Orpheum, Globe, and the Los Angeles Theater. There’s also a craft beer class, walking tours, and a scavenger hunt. If you linger too long at the beer tasting, make a night of it and stay at the Ace Hotel housed in the old United Artists Theater building. Broadway, take a bow.

    “SEX SCANDAL”… PEOPLE IN COUNCIL DISTRICT 14 NEED TO KNOW. Anyone with a sister or mother should read this. Yes…everyone. I have no political agenda…just stating the truth. Los Angeles City Councilman Jose Huizar is not telling the truth. He is trying to say his relationship with Francine Godoy was consensual to continue his career,as many politicians have done before him. If the truth came out, which is that he used his position to harass and torment this poor girl, his life/marriage would be over.The fact is, Francine Godoy was a victim and is now being portrayed as a home wrecker because huizar “admitted to an affair” which just isn’t true.

    People are just stuck on her salary…in the public sector, if a guy over 7 years worked his way up the corporate ladder, it wouldn’t be a big deal. When she was first brought on, she was hired well below her skill set. Once that was noticed, she was given more responsibility and pay to retain her. All this girl did was work hard and kept her honor the whole time. Anonymous posters on blogs who made up rumors years ago were just jealous of her and in competition.

    Don’t be fooled …Jose is a scum bag. FYI Huizar’s poor wife (who is also a victim) knows the truth but is remaining silent because she needs him to work to support her and their kids. Sincerely-someone who knows
