Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Fox Stadium Theatre is a standard Fox neighborhood house located on the southern side of Beverly Hills. It opened in 1931 and had seating arrange in a stadium style, with a raised stepped section at the rear, rather than an overhanging balcony. The theater has a nice stage area and fly space above. The Stadium Theatre was closed in 1960.

One of the few theaters on Pico Boulevard that has not been razed.

Yes, those were the other ones that were the pre-fab design with the Crest Theatre in Long Beach being the first one tobe built.

Here’s an early 50s shot of the Stadium, looking west on Pico. My favorite neighborhood theater. I’ve also uploaded photos of the Lido, the Bruin, the Wiltern, and the Vogue all from the 50s and 60s.

I didn’t know about the retail in the front. Interesting.

Main feature is Distant Drums with Gary Cooper – can’t quite make out the second feature, although one of the words looks like “marriage”. That means the photo is circa 1951

“The Model and the Marriage Broker”. Nancy Kulp’s first film role. She was Jane Hathaway on the Beverly Hillbillies.

It closed sometime in 1960. I was there at the final show.
