The Argus Theatre was designed by Los Angeles architect A.L.Valk. It was a conversion and expansion of an existing retail building, and was announced in the March 20, 1913 issue of Builder & Contractor magazine.

Arthur Lawrence Valk was referred to as a “…motion picture specialist….” in an article in the October 11, 1913 issue of Southwest Contractor and Manufacturer magazine, at the time he closed his office and joined in a partnership with his father, architect Lawrence Bolton Valk.
