  6. Amazing work! I just rewatched it for the first time since I was a kid. After being curious about Quist's LA hideout, I did some hunting in google earth and found where it was. Garland and 7th near downtown. Here's a little comparison I made.

    2. One more: I'm pretty sure the porn theater was the Le Sex Shop at 5507 Hollywood Boulevard. The building was there till a few years ago. Now the whole block has been torn out for a Petsmart complex. You can still see the old google street view images in the history back to 2007. It was called X Spot before closing.

    3. You're quite possibly right, Andrew. It would've been right next to Thai Town Express if correct. Too bad there wasn't a more broad view of Le Sex Shoppe in the film. Regardless, great research.
