Happy Birthday to the Cameo Theater

Today the Cameo theater at 528 South Broadway celebrates its 100 birthday.

As an electronics store.

It orginally opened on October 10, 1910 and was the first building in Los Angeles built as a movie theater.

The Cameo ran movies from 1910 until December 3, 1991 and has been used as an electronics store ever since.  When I toured the theater last year the screen and the speaker behind it were still there, which is very uncommon. 

Just makes me sad every time I pass it.
