A Gem On- And Off-Camera: L.A. Landmark Plays Dual Role In History

Submitted by • January 4, 2019

Much like art imitating life, the theatre that played the part of Van Beek has two identities … but many in the creative community of Los Angeles are glad past owners did NOT “just pick one!”. The storied building, located at 4403 Magnolia Blvd. in Burbank, spent several decades as the Magnolia Theatre. Designed by Jacques DeForest Griffin in 1940, the Magnolia’s marquee was topped with a 170-foot pylon said to be inspired by the Eiffel Tower.
