The Stardust Ballroom was located 5612 Sunset Boulevard - just east of Western Avenue. It operated as a ballroom for about 9 years (1975 - 1984).
About owner Orrin Tucker:
After playing himself in the 1975 TV movie "Queen of the Stardust Ballroom," Tucker leased a skating rink that same year on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood and turned it into the Stardust Ballroom.
His orchestra was the star attraction, but economics made him realize that ballroom dancing had "a dwindling popularity," he told The Times in 1981.
On weekends, patrons would swing and samba, but many nights Tucker would rent out the space for roller skating or other functions such as women's boxing.
In 1982, he closed the ballroom and moved to Palm Springs, where he sold real estate. He performed into the 1990s and last appeared on a cruise ship.
