Behold! The most beautiful sight to see in all of Downtown LA: The historic 1917 Rialto Theatre neon marquee — dark for numerous decades due to sad urban decay — was relit tonight after successful restoration work by Urban Outfitters as the clothing retailer prepares for a grand opening on December 19, 2013. Readers of DTLA Rising sent in numerous photos from various angles showing the amazing restoration of the historic theater signage now brightly lit with neon tubes illuminating the block near 8th and Broadway. Truly a beacon of hope for the future of Broadway and the growing strength of Downtown LA urban revitalization.
