News About This Theater
Designed B. Marcus Priteca in the early-1930’s, the Warner Beverley Hills Theatre was a medium sized theatre, designed after its sisters in Huntington Park and San Pedro. This theatre, like the other two other theatres, the Hollywood Pantages Theatre and the Warner Wiltern Theatre, are outstanding examples of what Art Deco style can be. The Warner Beverley Hills Theatre was opened May 19, 1931 with George Arliss in “The Millionaire”
With changing times and audiences & neighborhoods, the large Beverly Hills theatres would soon become parking lots, banks, and office buildings. The only theatre in the area to be saved to be saved was the Wilshire Theatre.
A few years ago when the restored “Lawrence of Arabia” was having its special reissue premiere in Los Angeles, the Warner Theatre was being torn down. Ironically, the Warner Theatre was the site of the original LA premiere for the film.
