Johnie's Broiler, 7447 Firestone Blvd., Downey, CA.
The Googie landmark Johnie's Broiler in Downey, CA (known as Harvey's Broiler when it opened in 1958), was ground into dust overnight last weekend, to expand a used car lot. Local preservationists were not pleased, and said the demolition was "illegal." As of today, the Johnie's sign is still standing, but the building has been destroyed.
Anybody know of other movies in which Johnie's played a role?
