Despite the broken windows and graffiti, the old Golden Gate Theatre in East Los Angeles still maintains its majestic aura. An architectural landmark and social hub before it was vacated in the late 1980s, the 12,000-square-foot structure at the intersection of Atlantic and Whittier boulevards may be staging a comeback. Escrow closed recently on sale of the property to the Charles Co. of Beverly Hills.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors unanimously voiced support Tuesday for plans to turn the long-abandoned Golden Gate Theatre in East Los Angeles into a 24-hour drugstore despite passionate last-minute appeals by some residents to block the project. Supervisor Gloria Molina, whose district includes the theater, said that while the project would not restore the theater to its full glory, it was better than leaving the building vacant and dilapidated. "The best we have is a compromise, and at least leaving it in place and preserving it" as much as possible, Molina said.

BBC2 is shooting a performance of the musical -- to be televised, four-letter words intact, in January.
