Hi Guys:

That wasn't the only Belasco Theater...there was also the one that was adjacent to the Mayan Theater at Hill & Olympic:



(I have a slightly better historic photo of the two, but I just realized it's on my work PC. Bummer...)

Both buildings still exist. The Mayan Theater is obviously still an active theater, and one with which I have a personal connection: My sister is co-creator, co-producer and performer in Lucha VaVoom, a quintessentially Los Angeles attraction whose "home base" is the Mayan.

The Mayan's current owners also own the former Belasco theater next door, but sadly that building is only used as a storage annex for the Mayan.
