The Village Theatre was designed by Sumner Spaulding, a prominent Los Angeles architect, best known for his design of Green Acres, the estate built by silent-screen legend Harold Lloyd. Spaulding’s firm also is credited for the Avalon Theatre on Santa Catalina Island.
Preliminary 1939 plans showed that the Village was to contain 500-600 seats and up to six stores. Located in Old Town Claremont, it opened on November 23, 1941. It was a Fox West Coast Theatre for many years and is now the Harvard Square Restaurant with an antique shop occupying the former auditorium.
It’s worth a visit to spend some time in Old Town with its small-college-town atmosphere and many coffee shops and restaurants for reading the Sunday papers or browsing in the shops.
