Both the first and second Luez theaters were originally owned and operated by Louise Mask. A January 18, 1941, Boxoffice item gives the origin of the theater’s unusual name. Ms. Mask wanted a name with only four letters, and when building the first theater held a naming contest for it. The name Luez, a phonic contraction the name Louise, was the winning submission. I’ve found Louise Mask mentioned in Boxoffice as operator of the Luez as late as 1967.

The website is (you’ll need to scroll down to the bottom of the page for information on the theatre. To the best of my knowledge the theatre primarly shows english films without subtitles.

Jack – did you submit the website link? I can’t find it online.
Is this a spanish language theater? I find it referenced as Theatre Luez in a lot of Spanish yellow pages. Also, the town name suggests that it is located in a latino community or has some connection with South America.
