Welcome to Cornerspotter, a weekly Curbed game in which you try to identify the location and/or identity of a particular building or streetscape in a historic photograph. Impress us and your fellow Curbed readers with your uncanny insight into Los Angeles and its past!
The arrival of a new movie was a much bigger deal in the late 1930s (when it's estimated this photo was taken) than it is today. Just look at those flags and that bunting! This charming little theater opened well before this photo was taken and the building still stands today. Think you know where it is? Give us the intersection or the address in the comments.
