This little Fox house has long since been destroyed.

This theater is not the Brentwood Twin Theatre that was at Wilshire & 26th Street in Santa Monica.

The Los Angeles Public Library photo database lists the Brentwood’s location at:

11611 Wilshire Blvd.

That puts it where the World Savings Bank building is now, on the northwest corner of Wilshire and Veteran.

Is the 11611 Wilshire the correct address?

11611 Wilshire must be the right address since the Brentwood Twin is at 2524 Wilshire, Santa, Monica.

There is a building on the south side of Wilshire that looks very much like this. It has a verticle sign, and IIRC the sign sais “Bruin.” Next time I’m in that area I’ll double check and post again.

The Bruin was a flower shop, and judging by the age of the signage, it looks like it had been around a while. Definitely the same vintage, though. The Bruin is a little art deco gem; I’d love to see it restored and turned into something!

What a surprise finding the Brentwood Theater on the internet! This was my father’s theater and we used to go there every week to see whatever film was showing. My father also owned a theater in Newhall, but I cannot remember the name of it off the top of my head.
