On August 8, 1945 it was renamed Music Hall Beverley Hills. It was renovated in 1960 to the plans of architect Arthur J. Drielsma. In 1974 it was taken over by Laemmle Theatres. It was later tripled and renovated in the mid-1990’s. In 2005, the seating capacities in the three auditoriums were;142, 98 and 259. Its Art Deco style appearance has remained to this day and continues to be a local favorite showing independent films. It was threatened with closure in early-2011, but got a least a one year extension on its lease.
