Via Franklin Avenue, we are treated to the trailer for the film Miracle Mile, prominently featuring a number of Mid-Wilshire landmarks in 1988. Behold, Anthony Edwards with hair, Mare Winningham with almost none, and the bright lights of Johnnie's. The trailer also shows us "the old May Co. building at Fairfax and Wilshire -- now a part of LACMA -- back when it was still operating as a department store. Check out the boarded-up Pan-Pacific Auditorium, before its mysterious destruction by fire."
