Exterior view of the Warner Bros. Theater located at 478 W. 6th Street in San Pedro. A banner hanging in front of the theater, advertises James Dunn in "Mysterious Crossing." There are several shops to the right of the theater, such as a Novelties shop, a Tailor and a Dry Goods. Many automobiles are parked along the curb on the street.; The Art Deco theater was designed by architect B. Marcus Priteca and interior designer A.T. Heinsbergen and opened on January 20, 1931. Apart from this theater, which Jack Warner called "The Castle of Your Dreams", Priteca designed two other art-deco palaces that were located in Beverly Hills and Huntington Park. The Warner Grand is the last of the three original theaters left intact and it has been undergoing gradual refurbishment after a thirty-year decline.
