When did the New Beverly lose it's backlit signage and distinctive color scheme? :(

It was multi-colored when I shot it in mid-September, so sometime after that.

When I asked about this on the Cinema Treasures thread someone wrote that they were taken down for repair and rewiring and would be going back up. So there may be no need for heartbreak.

I'm so happy to see those fab oval signs have returned!

(Now I just wish they'd paint that drab beige facade with something more interesting. Anything!)
