WeHo's Tiffany Theater Sign Saved Before Wrecking Ball Arrives

New, 8 comments

West Hollywood's mega Sunset|La Cienega development is finally getting off the ground, which means demolition for the mid-century Tiffany Theater on Sunset. Thankfully, Alison Martino, the local historian behind the site Vintage LA, got together with the people behind San Fernando Valley Relics, which salvages Valley history, to save the old sign, Wehoville reports. On Monday, Martino and Valley Relics's Jason Relic pulled the Tiffany's letters down and moved them to a North Hollywood warehouse--Relic may display the sign in his planned museum of city artifacts. Wehoville has a nice history of the Tiffany, which started out as a modeling office, served as a backdrop on TV's 77 Sunset Strip, and eventually became a movie theater and performance space. In the seventies and eighties, it was a favorite place to catch Rocky Horror Picture Show. It opened and closed sporadically over the next few decades, serving as a live venue and a home for the Actor's Studio.
