"Stuart Saves His Family"
We get this look down on the Chinese in "Stuart Saves His Family" (Paramount, 1995). The film, directed by Harold Ramis, stars Al Franken, Laura San Giacomo, Vincent D'Onofrio and Shirley Knight. Thanks to Chas Demster for the screenshot, on his Filming Locations of Chicago and Los Angeles page about the film. For the film they have "Alfie' up on the marquee -- an August 1966 release that didn't actually play the Chinese.
"Stuart" features a Saturday Night Live character as he attempts to solve the many problems of various family members. Mostly set in Chicago, we get this shot and a few other Los Angeles views when the family takes a trip west. See our pages on Grauman's Chinese, 6925 Hollywood Blvd., for a history of the 1927 building and several hundred photos.
