We get a view of the Chinese Theatre and the Hollywood Hotel beyond in Francis Ford Coppola's "The Godfather" (Paramount, 1972). The shot is from 1944. Note the signage still employed in the parking lot east of the theatre. Kurt Wahlner on his Chinese Theatre site notes that "Climax" and "San Diego I Love You" are playing.
Thanks to Patrick Sweeney for the screenshot, a post of his on our Los Angeles Theatres Facebook page.
