United Artists Inglewood Theatre exterior

Opening by 1931, the UA Inglewood Theatre was first operated by United Artists and by June 1938 by Fox West Coast Theatres.

The United Artists was taken over by the Mitchell Brothers on September 11, 1973 with Marilyn Chambers in “Behind the Green Door” and they operated it as an adult theatre. By the mid-1990’s it screened Spanish language movies and was renamed Fox Cinema II. It was destroyed in a fire in the 1990’s.

That was BERK’s Liquor store (not bar) just to the North. The bar was “The Office” in the 50s and 60s.

As mentioned above, Fox Cinema II should be added as previous name, or final name which it likely was.
