Beverly Theater was originally designed in the Indo-Chinese style, but was later remodeled into an Art Deco theater. The Beverly has a large Taj Mahal-type dome, which is located above the theater’s facade.
In the mid 1970’s, Beverly Hills had a number of theaters. But with the noise & traffic generated by such films as Tommy, Woodstock, and others, local citizens began to complain.
Responding to these local complaints, General Cinemas closed the theater in 1977. It was later gutted to become a store. At the time of the closing, you could still see what the inside looked like. To get a small look inside this once outstanding theater, watch the film Xanadu.
After many years of housing a bank, the Beverly was sadly demolished in August of 2005 to make way for new development.
