This theater was owned by Edward D. Silent, and designed by Los Angeles architect Silas Reese Burns. It was attached to a five story office block called the Silent Building. The Alhambra Theatre was opened on October 5, 1913 with Marie Walcamp in “The Girl and the Tiger”. It was operated by the Tally Amusement Company, headed by E.J. Tally. In August 1915 it was leased to Fred Miller and was renamed Miller’s Hill Street Theatre. By June 1918 it had reverted back to the Alhambra Theater name. It was one of several theaters which once lined S. Hill Street in downtown Los Angeles, most of which are gone. None of those which do survive are currently operating as movie houses.
The site of the Alhambra Theater has long been occupied by a parking lot.
