"Point Blank"

We get a look at the Tiffany Theatre through the car windows in John Boorman's "Point Blank" (MGM, 1967) when Walker  (Lee Marvin) checks out the apartment where his ex-wife Lynne (Sharon Acker) is living.

Another shot of the Tiffany when Walker gets out of the car. He's looking for both the wife who betrayed him as well as the best buddy Mal Reese (John Vernon) who shot and left him for dead while on a caper at Alcatraz.

A view Walker gets out the window of the apartment with Keenan Wynn waiting for him by the car. Wynn says earlier on a ferry ride that he'll help Walker find Reese because he wants the "organization" behind him.  Oh, yes, Angie Dickinson figues into this later as well. Lots of fun.

The 1966 vintage theatre, at 8534 Sunset Blvd., was opened by Robert Lippert in 1966. The site has been redeveloped. Check out the page about the Tiffany Theatre on the Los Angeles Theatres site for more information.
