This long-vanished theater on what was (at the time it was built) the outskirts of downtown Los Angeles, was owned for a while by Edward Mozart Kuttner, who was cited as being the first person in Los Angeles to exhibit six-reel movies. By 1911, it was operated as the Walker Theater by the Arthus S. Hyman circuit.
The theater, originally built in 1908 as a playhouse, was operating until 1946, when it was demolished.
On the ‘Special Features’ option on the the DVD of “Singin' in the Rain”, Arthur Freed states that before joining MGM, he operated a small, profitable theatre in downtown Los Angeles named the Orange Grove Theatre.
