This Art Deco style movie theater was located at 9404 Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills. It was designed by B. Marcus Priteca and opened in 1931. It was demolished in 1988 by banker and real estate developer Charles Keating the same day conservation groups were testifying at a hearing to try and preserve the building. Keating went to prison after the savings and loan scandal and never built on the property. It was replaced with a parking lot.
