I remember the Vermont Theater very well. During the mid to late 1960’s, while attending 59th Street Elementary, and Horace Mann Jr. High School, my brothers (Ed and Printle) and I used to visit the Vermont Theater quite often. I can remember one year at halloween watching some horror movies at the Vermont. We made sure to catch the early show so we wouldn’t get spooked walking home in the dark. The Vermont was a fun place to visit, leaving a lot of good fun memories. It’s ture, there is no trace of the Theater today, it would be nice if someone could post a photo of the Vermont Theater on this site. Thank you very much.

No photo, but here is an August 1948 ad from the LA Times:

Is there a listing on CT for a Vermont Theater at 1417 West 24th Street? There’s and ad for this theater under Moving Picture Theaters of Los Angeles from the LA Times for March 9, 1914.

Also, could anyone tell me if this theater was built and the name if so?

This is from Feb. 5, 1922 in the LA Times.

Back in the 50s, there was a small and ordinary theater on Vermont around 90th which I attended and “Thought” was also called the Vermont. Looking at Google Street-View, I see a small Church which appears to be a former theater listed at 9115 S. Vermont. It fits. Wonder if anyone knows anything about it ? Is that location listed under some other name ?

9115 S. Vermont was the Manchester Bowling Academy before it was a church. Advertised in the LA Times from 1942 to about 1964.
