Previous Names: Loring Opera House, Loring Theatre
Originally opened in January 1890 as the Loring Opera House. Stars such as Sarah Bernhardt and W.C. Fields performed on its stage.
It was remodeled by architect Welmar Lamar, reopening as the Golden State Theatre on October 15, 1928 with Al Jolson in “The Singing Fool”. It was operated by Fox West Coast Theatres.
It was closed in January 1973, and stood unoccupied until the empty building was gutted by a mysterious fire (possibly arson due to the high cost of renovation?) on the evening of October 11, 1990. City officials then approved plans to demolish the remains of the building.
