DESILU PLAYHOUSE

6633 Romaine Street, Hollywood

Audience members waiting outside the entrance to Desilu Playhouse (the rear of General Service Studios) to watch an episode of I Love Lucy, circa 1951-1953.
The same location today. Note the black arrows show where the entrance has been walled up. Most likely the same sidewalk. This is the rear of Sunset Las Palmas Studios.
