It’s hard to see sometimes through the forest of tube socks and boomboxes that now litter the windows of Broadway, the boulevard that was once a shimmering candyland of flashy neon signs, decorated display windows, colorful streetcars and hordes of shoppers buzzing in and out of Bullocks and Broadway and the May Company. The big department stores (and their Christmas Santas) left in the 1970s, but there’s plenty of magic left in downtown, just ask any kid who’s arrived via the Angel’s Flight railroad. The Los Angeles Conservancy is hosting a special holiday matinee of Miracle on 34th Street (1947) on Sunday at the recently restored Million Dollar Theater. Bring some kids (or be a kid), Grab a bite at Grand Central Market (Enjoy this coupon) support the Conservancy and
contribute to the future of this great thoroughfare.
