The Loyola Theatre was opened on October 3, 1946 by Fox West Coast Theatres. Located in the Westchester district of Los Angeles, close to LAX airport. Before the theatre’s conversion to a medical office building, the front of the Loyola Theatre featured a beautiful swan neck tower that rose about 60 feet above the theatre’s marquee. The auditorium was similiar to the Fox Crest Theatre in North Long Beach, CA (now razed) and featured an early form of stadium-style seating with a raised stepped section at the rear. The auditorium ceiling contained 900 feet of whitew, rose & blue neaon tubing inside two troughs.
The Loyola Theatre was closed in the fall of 1982. It became an Eastern church for the religious group following the Maharaji for a shot time. When they vacated the building the interior was gutted and it was converted into office space. The original external feature remain, including the original street paybox and the building is a Designated Historic Monument.
