Here are excerpts from an LA Times article dated June 1, 1913:

JH Parker, manager of the lease department of the California Realty Corporation, reports having leased on account of the Baer Realty Corporation a photoplay theater on Washington Street near Cherry. The building has just been completed at a cost of $32,000 and is considered one of the finest of its kind in the city. The building has been leased to HH Wellenbrink for a term of ten years at a total rental of $36,000. A. Lawrence Volk is the architect.

The same agency has leased on account of Eugene G. Haskell a moving picture theater now under construction on West Adams Street near Harbor. The auditorium will have a seating capacity of 1000. The building will cost approximately $20,000 and has been leased by Keys and Seefloth for a term of ten years. A.C. Martin is the architect.
