"Sherlock Jr."


The Paramount Theatre (as it was then known) at 5528 Santa Monica Blvd. appears in this shot from Buster Keaton's "Sherlock Jr." (Metro Pictures, 1924).   Earlier it had been called the Loma Theatre.

Thanks to John Bengtson, "the great detective of silent film locations," for identifying the theatre. See his Silent Locations blog for several great posts about "Sherlock Jr."  He also discusses additional locations on the Blu-Ray edition of the film.
