Apple Tower Theatre

The Tower Theatre opened in 1927 and was the first theatre designed by renowned theatre architect S. Charles Lee. The creative designer fit 900 seats and ground floor retail onto a tiny corner lot. In June 2021, the Tower Theatre was adaptively reused and reopened as a new Apple store.
