Built in the 1930s or 40s, the theater had Spanish roofing tiles at corners of facade. In the 1990s, it was renamed the Kuo Hwa, showing Chinese films (saw Jackie Chan’s “City Hunter” there) and was torn down in ‘96 or '97. There were seven vertically stacked squares above marquee that spelled EDWARDS. The letters were later covered with Chinese characters.
When the building was being torn down, a beam under the marquee was exposed with the words “Edwards Century” written on it. There was a crescent moon in the center of the marquee.
