We see the outside of the Dome Theatre in Ocean Park in Ed Wood's "Final Curtain" (1957). The theatre was closed at the time -- and getting gutted to become part of the pier area's makeover -- Pacific Ocean Park.
Thanks to Brooklyn-based theatre historian Cezar Del Valle for spotting this one. The 22 minute film was done as a pilot for a projected TV series that never happened. We do get lots of interior views but they were shot at the Forum Theatre, 4050 W. Pico Blvd.
A Forum Theatre proscenium view from "Final Curtain." No, that's not the original proscenium. It's a revamp evidently done after the theatre had closed as a film house and was doing a few legit shows.
A chandelier view at the Forum.
See the pages on the Forum Theatre and the Dome Theatre (or rather theatres -- there were two locations) for photos and history.
