East Los Angeles is home to one of the remaining artifacts of the glamorous movie houses of yesteryear. The shell of the Golden Gate Theatre on Whittier Boulevard only hints at what this theatre was like in its heyday. The entire front facade of the theatre was demolished in the Whittier earthquake of 1987. Only memories of those who saw and visited this theatre in its heyday remain.

 

The overgrown entrance to the Golden Gate

 

Since the photo to the left was taken, the Golden Gate Theater lot has been cleaned up. The dirt leveled and black top added; chain-link fence removed and a rod-iron fence added; and some stores were built on the west side of the lot on Whittier Blvd. In regards to The Theater itself, roofers repaired the roof. Many thanks to Timothy G. Shubin for update. 09-06
