News About This Theater
Beverly Theater was designed in the Indo-Chinese style and opened May 18, 1925. It was equipped with a Wultizer organ. It was later remodeled into an Art Deco style theater. The Beverly Theater has a large Taj Mahal-type dome, which is located above the theater’s facade.
In the mid-1970’s, Beverly Hills had a number of theaters. But with the noise & traffic generated by such films as “Tommy”, “Woodstock”, and others, local citizens began to complain.
Responding to these local complaints, General Cinemas closed the theater in 1977. It was later gutted to become a store. At the time of the closing, you could still see what the inside looked like. To get a small look inside this once outstanding theater, watch the film “Xanadu”.
After many years of housing a bank, the Beverly Theater was sadly demolished in August of 2005 to make way for new development.
