Twentieth Century Fox goes to Main Street, Los Angeles. The work of cinematographer Joseph MacDonald:
I had an opportunity to tour the Regent, 448 S. Main St. (yes, it's still standing) during the Los Angeles Conservancy's recent Mainly Main tour. The theater, built in 1914, was never a movie palace, so there's nothing opulent about it. The seats have been removed and the floor, though raked, is poured concrete. The ceiling appears to be mostly intact, as is the proscenium. There's no stage to speak of and no orchestra pit. This theater was strictly intended for showing movies.
