Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

The Los Angeles Times on September 27, 1912 noted that R.L. Riley and Max Zempleburg were commencing work on a theater building on Eighth Street. The Times on February 7, 1913 said that the Crescent Theater was nearly ready to open pending the arrival of opera chairs. A follow up story noted that it was opened by the end of February.

The Sanborn Insurance Maps of 1928 place the theater at 261 N. 8th Street, which later was changed to La Cadena Drive. Colton has also been known as the Hub City thus at some unknown time the theater changed its name to reflect that. From 1943, the Hub City Theatre was screening Spanish language films, and was operated by Dietrich & Feldstein.

The Film Daily Yearbook of 1950-51 lists the Hub City Theatre with 756 seats but around 1967 the theater met its end during urban renewal.
