Addresses and street names were changed in the early 1930s.

I’ve seen records of a Lomita Theatre listed at 1063 Narbonne Avenue – had the numbers of the street changed at some point?

A Southwest Builder & Contractor item about this theatre, in the issue of April 4, 1924, says that the construction of the 50' by 137' building was frame and stucco. That would have made quite simple the eventual alterations (such as widened second floor windows) which can be seen by comparing the recent and historic photos linked from comments on July 27.

An organ repo? Imagine having that job. “Okay, Horowitz, hand over the piano and nobody gets hurt”.

I think the theater is gone. There is a newer buiding at 24333 and then a small one at 24401:

I have driven down this street hundreds of times. I had no idea that a theater existed in Lomita.
