Photographer Larry Underhill was hired
by the Los Angeles Conservancy to take photographs of the Valley Music Theatre immediately
prior to its demolition in 2006. The collection consists of forty-six silver gelatin
photographs taken by Underhill, as well as documentation of the theater designed by Hawkins
and Lindsey, Architects.
In 2006, Larry Underhill was hired by the Los Angeles Conservancy to take the last pictures
of the building before it was demolished by the wrecking ball in the fall of 2006, too late
for the Conservancy to place the Valley Music Theatre before the landmarks commission.
