The Gordon Theatre's flashing neon puts in an appearance a little over a minute into The Doors' "L.A. Woman" video from 1971. It can be seen on YouTube. Thanks to Sean Ault for spotting this one.
Here's the shot a moment later with the theatre's name lit on the front panel. The 1938 vintage house at 614 N. La Brea Ave. was later renamed the Showcase. See our page on the Showcase Theatre for more about the venue.
