MANY L.A. cineastes have fond memories of the Vagabond, the MacArthur Park-adjacent theater where you could see a pair of vintage Technicolor musicals one week and some latter-day art house fare the next. It closed in the early '90s, but now plans are afoot to bring it back. Only this time it's going legit. Specifically, the Wilshire Boulevard building is being converted into the Hayworth Theatre Center, a four-space venue for live performances slated to open in March.
