The Marie Hitchcock Puppet Theater. It was originally part of a large unit built for the 1935-36 California Pacific Exposition called the Palisades Building, which became the Hollywood Motion Picture Hall of Fame for the exposition. After World War II, the building was divided into three sections: an arts and crafts center, a recital hall, and the 234-seat theater, later named after puppeteer Marie Hitchock, who gave her first public performance there with her sister, Genevieve Engman, in 1947. Marie continued performing until she died in 1994.
