From the LA Times, January 31, 1912:

Redondo Beach – The new Art Theater will be opened tomorrow night with a benefit performance given by the local order of the Fraternal Brotherhood of Eagles. Special arrangements have been made for the members of the Eagles from Los Angeles and Santa Monica to reach Redondo and it is supposed that two special cars will arrive from each place. Two shows will be given, the first performance beginning at 7 and the second at 9.

There are plenty of photos on the Fox Redondo page.

Does ANYONE have pictures of the Fox Redondo Theater?? I used to go there back in the early 60’s, it had a balcony and even had frescos on the huge walls. I believe it was also used as a bomb shelter, I do know when they tried to demolish it the wrecking ball bounced right off of it. One would have to have gone to this old giant to appreciate just how grand it was. One year it even had a closed circuit broadcast of the Indy 500. It was the most boring experience of my life.

This is probably around the time of the opening:
