Picture Of The Day

This is a picture taken outside the Sports Arena in 1961. The woman is picketing an “anti-communism” school featuring Roy Rogers, Ronald Reagan and Pat Boone. But that’s not why we posted the picture.
We’re fascinated by the huge sign in the background that says “Figueroa Theatre.” Any L.A. history buffs or residents who remember this structure and its purpose, feel free to comment.
