Xanadu | 1980

Olivia Newton-John is Terpsichore, the Muse of Dance, who pops down to 80s Los Angeles to help open a roller disco.

Yeh, and why not?

The disco was the now-gone Pan-Pacific Auditorium, a beautiful Streamline Moderne structure which stood at 7600 Beverly Boulevard in Los AngelesFairfax district.

Built in 1935, the building ended up empty and was allowed to decay. In 1989 was gutted by fire. For a time, it looked like the famous façade would be incorporated into a new building, but the remains were finally bulldozed in the early 90s.

Last time I visited, there was a small park on the site.

This is a basic entry and due to be expanded.
