The Pacific Theatre opened as The Warner Bros. Hollywood Theatre in April 26, 1928. It could seat 2756 people – crazy!

During the 80 week run of “2001, A Space Odyssey” the theatre was sold from Stanley Warner to Pacific Theatres and was renamed the Hollywood Pacific Theatre.

The theatre suffered damage in the 1994 Earthquake. This caused the two balcony screens to be closed. The Pacific Theatre closed finally on August 15, 1994. It remained closed till 2002 the Entertainment Technology Center tested the new digital projection technology. They left again 2006 and in early 2008 it was being used by a church on Sundays. The church vacated the building in June 2013.

There are two antenna towers on top that once transmitted the signal of KFWB radio.

Do you remember the time when there where record placers and you could put a lot of 45 on a little stick in the middle and each time the 45 reached the end of the song a new one dropped down?? That building reminds me of that.

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
