Built in 1907 by George W. Walker, the six-story theater was known as the Walker Auditorium and was the home of the theatrical hits of the day. It was renamed the Orange Grove Theater and became a music performance hall. Before being renamed one last time as the Grand Theatre in 1936 and converted in to a motion picture theater, it was briefly called the Actors Theatre. The building includes offices and meeting rooms.
Grand Theatre, located in the Walker Auditorium Building at 750 S. Grand Avenue, is to be demolished to make room for a parking lot. Dated July 3, 1946.
