52 lanes, open all night


Circa 1939 postcard.

“The Sunset Bowling Center, ‘Situated on the Warner Brothers Sunset Lot where the first talking picture in Hollywood was made’. This one comes to us from Steve Taylor, Postcard Roundup’s roving reporter. He says: ‘The Sunset Bowling Center building was built in 1922 as the West Coast headquarters of the Warner brothers – Harry, Albert, Sam, and Jack. Warner’s corporate offices were moved to Burbank in 1929 after the acquisition of First National Pictures. In 1939 the studio was bought and made into a 52 lane bowling alley.’ ”
