Music Hall Theatre

Designed in 1936, the Music Hall (called the Elite for its first ten years) is one of only a few theatres still standing in tribute to the former glory of Beverly Hills' status as a theatrical entertainment center rivaling that of Hollywood and downtown Los Angeles.

The glowing neon of the deco exterior serves as a poignant reminder, though the interior, divided into three auditoriums in the 1990s, retains few, if any, of the theatre's original features.

The building is now occupied by Laemmle Theatres.

Fox Theatre Pomona

When it opened in 1931, the Fox Theatre in Pomona was a decidedly glamorous addition to a small, agricultural community on the outskirts of Los Angeles County.
