The Granada Theatre was built by the S & S Circuit (Small and Strausberg) simultaneously with their Corona Theatre, and the two stadium-type houses (no balconies) opened in 1927 within a week of each other. S & S was soon taken over by William Fox, and both theatres eventually became part of the Skouras Circuit after Fox’s bankruptcy.
Although the Granada Theatre was the larger of the two theatres, it was located in a residential area too far to benefit from Corona’s main shopping district on Junction Boulevard. It never prospered and closed in the early-1950’s. For a time, it served as a factory-warehouse, but later became an evangelical church and community center.
Information about its present status would be appreciated.
