Where Am I in Culver City? Game 025

Every other friday, I'll post a picture of something in Culver City that is 'hiding in plain sight.'

This time, the question is: Do you know where in Culver CIty this...thing...is? If you know, enter your response in the comments box of this post! I'll reveal the answer in two Fridays, when I post a new game.

Last time, I posted this flag-topped architectural detail:

Culver City Times member Evlynne Braithwaite Householder was the first to correctly identify the picture as being "in downtown culver city by Alandales and Expressions Hair and the Yoga Studio." In addition Tara Pueblo Von Ins correctly identified it as "The building on the corner of Washington and Watseka, opposite Akasha" on the Culver City Times Facebook page. Good spotting!

The stylish building is clearly identified as being home to State Farm insurance office, but in smaller writing, it's also labeled the "Freeman Building." For any follower of Culver City's history, Freeman is a name that rings some bells. Louis Freeman was the owner of Freeman’s Grocery Store, an early downtown Culver City landmark, and Freeman bought the Hull Building -- which today it is home to Akasha Restaurant, right across Watseka from the Freeman Building. 

I would also note that Stu Freeman, the grandson on Louis, is the past president of the Culver City Historical Society, so the Freeman name lives on in Culver City!

true the latest picture is the Kirk Douglas theatre. However for me it is a remnant from my childhood as well originally known as the the Culver Theatre!  People would sit on benches in the 2 smaller theatres and comfortably stretch out their legs while they smoked just about anything in the back. A wider theater was in the back and reminded me of The Nuart's old cheap seating. 

"Opened in 1947 and closed in 1989" according to this website: California Movie Theatres
