I believe this photograph is new to NLA.

"Carrier boys from the Herald-Express posed in front of the Beverly Canon Theater after they saw a special showing of the motion picture, "Kon-Tiki,"
as guests of producer Sol Lesser and the manager of the theater, July 20, 1958."

The theater was located at 205 North Canon Drive in Beverly Hills, but was demolished in 2005.

Larry Underhill

and this is interesting:

The Beverly Canon Theater opened as the Hitching Post in 1946, the third in a chain of three theater devoted to westerns.

Here is the Hitching Post on Hollywood Blvd. in 1948.

I couldn't find a photograph of the Beverly Canon when it was the Hitching Post. (and I don't know where the third Hitching Post was located)
