Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
The Warner Grand 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.
Interior view of the Warner Grand Theater, located at 478 W. 6th Street in San Pedro, showing the auditorium seating on both levels and the projection booth. The ceiling and walls are decorated with various Art Deco architectural details.
