Then & Now


Original entrance to RKO Studios


Old RKO Studios entrance


(Top) THEN: R-K-O Studio entrance

780 Gower Street, Hollywood


NOTE: R-K-O Studios was at one time located at the northeast corner of Gower and Melrose in Hollywood. Desilu founders, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz acquired the lot in 1957 and sold it ten years later to Paramount. With that merger, the former R-K-O main entrance became a side entrance for Paramount.
