Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
Opened in 1922 as the Roosevelt Theatre, the theater was originally designed as a single story structure by A. R. Walker & P. A. Eisen. An Art Deco remodeling, which included adding a second story to the building, was completed by Richard D. King in 1930; it was at that time that it became known as Chotiner's Parisian Theatre. Later, Fox West Coast made it the Fox Parisian, which lasted until it closed around 1958. The theater has since been demolished.
Looking southwest across Vermont Avenue, from just west of where it crosses 8th Street (not visible). Various businesses, including the Fox Parisian Theatre (right), are seen. Photograph dated December 29, 1936.
