Built in 1929 and used as a nightclub under various names over the years. On February 8, 1950 it opened as the New Globe Theatre, but stopped showing movies in 1951 and became a Yiddish theatre. On October 23, 1958 it was opened by Robert L. Lippert as a twin screen cinema named the Capri & Riviera Theatres. On September 13, 1963 it was de-twinned and renamed New Yorker Theatre, and on June 11, 1964 it was renamed Europa Theatre. By 1969 it was screening adult movies and this use continued under various names: it became the Eros Theatre on February 11, 1970. In February 1971 it was renamed Beverly Cinema and on August 2, 1972 it was renamed New Beverly Cinema. It stopped screening adult movies in September 1977.
It reopened on May 5, 1978 as a revival house presenting a Marlon Brando double-bill:“A Streetcar Named Desire” and “Last Tango in Paris”.
