It would be nice to see this place used for something besides a warehouse.

How does this theater look like inside? Is it big? Is there a stage area?

Can you change the city location from Los Angeles to Hollywood? It the only theatre on Hollywood Blvd. listed in Los Angeles not Hollywood.

The Fox Theatre seated 647 people. (not the 175 in the above post)

The Iris Theatre opened in 1918, it was designed by architect Frank Molline. S. Charles Lee gave the theatre a sleek art modere look along with a new neon marquee in the late 1930’s. During this time the Iris showed first run Warner movies. In 1968 the Iris was renovated again for $250,000 and its name changed to the Fox. It reopened with the movie “The Killing of Sister George”. The ads for the theatre boasted a new facade, expended lobby, marble walls and comfortable form chairs. The theatre closed in 1991. Today there is a available sign on it’s marquee. The trouble with that is all that is left inside is a shell of the former theatre. Mann Theatres the last chain to operate the theatre. Gutted it for use as a warehouse for equipment for the chain.

I worked there as a local 150 union projectionist for the first six months of 1985. We ran Dune (70mm) , Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom, 2010 and others. This was the smallest theatre I ever worked in that ran 70mm using the cheaply built Norelco DP-75 with all those plastic pieces. Seated 175 with a screen measuring 15x30.

The comment below about the lights. The lights are still on a timer, so sometimes they go on when someone goes into the theatre. Mann theatres closed the Fox afew years back. Mann theatres had been using the Fox as a warehouse for the company. All the seats are gone and all the booth equipment has been removed. Mann theatres closed the Fox because it was cheaper to use it as a warehouse than a theatre. So it would be expensive to reopen this theatre.

Last week, half of the sign was light up during the night…perhaps a sign of opening again?
