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 http://www.timelesstribute.net/pages/6/ (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.
