The long shuttered Phil's Diner in North Hollywood was moved and somebody stole their classic neon sign. If you see it at a swap meet or hear anything please PM me and I'll get you in touch with the owners.

If the current owners are interested, the diner pops up in the movie "Night of the Creeps." It's a piece o' crap movie, but there's the diner in all of its nighttime glory, neon lit and everything.

Phil's Diner Victory
Richard Bogy has just shared this great news for the Valley's Museum Community.

A New life for Phil’s Diner

The 1920’s was the era of the dining car style “dinerâ€￾. One of the grandest examples was in North Hollywood and was called Phil’s Diner...On March 20th Phil’s Diner was given new life. The CRA Board approved a plan for a new modern office building, a luxurious Laemmle’s 8-screen Theater, and a restored and operating Phil’s Diner. The Diner will be moved to the corner of Lankershim and Weddington – across from the El Portal Theater – where it will be restored to its 1920’s condition and reopen as a restaurant, and to become the centerpiece of the theater courtyard. ...

Speaking of diners:

Anyone want a 1940's Valentine diner?
http://www.loopnet.com/Listing/17121207 ... Arleta-CA/

Looks like the standard 10 stools were removed, making it just a fast food counter. Here's the Google street view:
http://g.co/maps/n379t

There were at least two other Valley installations of Valentine dinettes. One that used to be at Ventura and Topanga is now restored in Arizona:

But does anybody know what ever became of the one at Saticoy and Reseda? (18448 Saticoy St?) It had been converted into a key shop

but now I don't spot it in Google Maps. Am I looking in the wrong place, or is it gone now?

And what was the fate of the Mullen's Dining Cars in Buellton?

Did it get a reprieve? A new home? Or...
