Located at Redondo Boulevard and W. 64th Street, the Seville Theatre opened on February 8, 1924 with a program consisting of “Judgement of the Storm” starring Lloyd Hughes, a Snub Pollard comedy and “My Boy Will”. The Seville Orchestra was conducted by Charles Beresford, and Lucille Ricksen and other stars appeared ‘In Person’. Soon after opening an Estey organ was installed. Programing silent movies, Tuesday nights were taken over by ‘High Class Vaudeville’.
Designed and built by a local company General Construction Company in a Spanish Mission style, there was a large Mission style bronze bell on the Redondo Boulevard exterior which was illuminated at night. There were vines and foliage, and the lobby floor had an unusual treatment with the effect of ‘stepping stones with moss in between’. The theatre had ‘mechanically controlled’ air conditioning. It was operated by Bernard F. Robison.
Later taken over by the Fox West Coast Theatres chain, it operated until at least the early-1950’s.
