I've heard the building is still there (I think it's a porn shop now).
Indeed it is, last I remember. I think it's called "Cave." The building next door to it burned down in a fire 2 or 3 years ago, it had housed a very trendy club, of which the name escapes me at the moment. So that much storied intersection of Hollywood and Vine currently has a huge vacant lot at the northwest corner.
