Designed by L.A. Smith, this was the first vaudeville and movie theater to be built in Beverly Hills. In 1977, after decades of serving as a movie house, the building was closed. The interior was gutted and redesigned to accommodate commercial use; it was occupied by Fiorucci, the boutique seen here, and an Israeli bank. Despite hopes that the structure could be saved, it was demolished in 2005.; The Warner Theatre was designed by B. Marcus Priteca and opened in 1931; it was demolished in 1988 and replaced with a parking lot.
