La Cienega Lanes boarded up on La Cienega and Santa Monica~ circa1979.
it then became Flippers roller disco - I used to go there every weekend. a group of post~punk/new wave freinds would meet @ one booth. the rest of the skater crowd hated us. especially the girls.
sad, but true~ it is now a CVS. If you look above next you time you're in there - you can see the original ceiling from the 1940s and you'll be able to make out where the lanes were facing.
