Now that's a façade: there seems to be no structural reason for any one of those features.

Been to this theatre many times.

I'm confused: what McHale's Navy would be playing at a theater?

This pic is from 1964, the year the movie version of McHale's Navy was released.

This was on Santa Monica Blvd. right by the Promenade that spent its last few years as a British music hall, now torn down. It's just a memory now.

McHale's Navy. Ahead of its time, actually. Before audiences paid inflated prices to see their favorite TV shows on the big screen.

I used to work here when it was the Mayfair Music Hall. Dr. Bombay from Bewitched (Bernard Fox)was the "Chairman" of a vaudeville revivial show back in the late 70's to early 80's... Good times.
