See Joy Childs’ item – August 22, 2004: Affirmative Action Should Not Keep Me From the Movies – regarding the Silent Movie Theater on Fairfax, a block south of Melrose out here in Hollywood.  Here it is with a picture of one of the ghosts that haunts it, standing guard.

And what live theater is about now in Hollywood, the Open Fist – a few steps south of Hollywood Boulevard on La Brea.  No class.
