9 people favorited this theater
Opened as the Kinema Theater on December 15, 1917. By 1922 it had been equipped with a Robert Morton theatre organ which had a 5 manual console. It was later renamed the Criterion Theatre (and still later by June 1938, the Fox Criterion Theatre when it had been taken over by West Coast Theatres).
This theater was located at W. 7th Street and S. Grand Avenue — about four blocks away from the hustle and bustle of Broadway. The Criterion Theatre hosted the West Coast premiere of “The Jazz Singer”.
It was razed in 1941 and replaced by an office building.
