There is now a 1960 LA Times news story and 1961 ad about the Brookhurst in the photo section
According to the ad in the photo section, Dittoe, Fahnestock & Ferber, Architects and Engineers of Cincinnati designed the original Rialto.
The Google Street view is correct. According to the Sanborn Insurance Map(see photo section) the address today is 35 S. Union, which is the home of State Farm Insurance.
There are now two 1921-22 LA Times news stories in the photo section.
This Cinemark 10, inside the mall, had a short life—eight years. In 2006, it was closed to make way for the Cinemark 16, which opened outside the mall on November 17. Photos of the newer Cinemark 16 can be seen on its own page.
Shops replaced the Cinemark 10, inside the mall.
The address of the Rex can be updated to 928 Washington St.
The historical photo, in the photo section, shows that the building is still there and is now home to Radio Shack.
The photo and Sanborn Map of 1915 also shows where the Rex was in relationship to the rest of the block.
The Sanborn Insurance Maps of 1949, in the photo section, place the Grand theatre at 126 Railroad Avenue.
Google Maps will display this theatre at 81 Maple Street, Barton, Vermont.
The Sanborn Insurance Maps from 1928-41 (see photo section) place the theatre in Orleans, Vermont at Main and Maple Streets.
From what I have read, both Barton and Orleans are one town but separately incorporated. I found a list of Vermont towns but only Barton is listed.
Let me correct myself. The old Krikorian 7 Theatre was closed, but it was never converted.
Currently it is a discount house operated by Interstate Theatres, based in Dallas, Texas.
