The 600-seat Madrid Theatre was built in 1926 at a total cost of $50,000 which included the price of and installation of a Robert Morton pipe organ which accompanied the silent movies. It opened on November 24, 1926.
In its later years of operation it became a porn cinema, being re-named Pussycat Theater. This closed when the theatre was irreparably damaged in the 1994 Northridge earthquake.
After eventual demolition a new funky theatre was built on the site to replace it. Known as the Madrid Theatre, it serves as a 430 seat (stalls and balcony) performing arts facility, operated by the Valley Cultural Center and the City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department.
The Madrid Theatre is now the West Valley’s premier performance venue, it also hosts film festivals.
