A look at the Skouras-style boxoffice of the Culver Theatre in John Berry's "Tension" ( MGM, 1949). Thanks to Ronald Schwartz for the screenshot -- he had it as a post on the Facebook page Photos of Los Angeles. The film about a meek pharmacist who plans to murder his wife's lover stars Richard Basehart, Audrey Totter and Cyd Charisse.
The theatre, at 9820 Washington Blvd. in Culver City, opened in 1946. The exterior is fairly intact but the interior has been turned into a smaller legit house, the Kirk Douglas. See our Culver Theatre page for more photos.
