Archiving Angeles (AA): Premiere at Carthay Circle

October 17, 2008 in History

Tyrone Power and Sonja Henie joined Hollywood’s biggest stars for the premiere of Shirley Temple’s Wee Willie Winkie at the Carthay Circle Theatre on San Vicente. The movie palace would later be demolished to make way for… an office building.

The year was 1937.
