Amoeba Hollywood: A Photo History (Part 1)

Posted by Amoebite, April 29, 2020 10:57am | Post a Comment

With the announcement this week that Amoeba Hollywood will not reopen on Sunset Blvd and will instead focus on hopefully reopening in the fall at our new location at 6200 Hollywood Blvd, we wanted to look back at the amazing history we've seen over the last 19 years. Although we are not able to give the building the sendoff it deserves, it's our hope that you'll find some joy, some memories, and some solace in these images. 

So much as happened at Amoeba since we opened at 6400 Sunset Blvd on November 17, 2001! It's impossible to do it justice in one piece, so we're going to be sharing more pictures and more history in the coming days and weeks.

Let's start at the beginning, shall we?
