Woodley’s Theatre was an early vaudeville house in downtown L.A.’s Broadway theatre district. Built for E.W. Woodley, it opened September 27, 1914 and was designed by the architectural firm Train & Williams. On September 18, 1918 it was renamed Victory Theatre.
It was purchased by Mack Sennett in 1920 and closed in September 1920 to enable an expansion and extensive remodeling (by architect H.O. Davis and the Frank Meline Company) in a Spanish style. It was reopened as a motion picture theatre, renamed Mission Theatre from December 2, 1920. It did not remain for long, however, as it closed January 18, 1925 and was demolished.
The fourth Los Angeles home of the Orpheum Theater Circuit was built on its site, which opened February 15, 1926.
