Information for this tour was contributed by RL Strong.

The Loma Theatre was Burbank's first cinema equipped for sound, featuring the Vitaphone system. In addition to first run features, the Loma also presented serials and touring vaudeville shows.

The theatre lasted into the early 1960's when newer, larger and air conditioned venues closed what was by then Burbank's only adult theatre.

Any hopes for the theatre were put to an end with 1971's Sylmar earthquake. The theatre sustained enough damage to be condemned and it was demolished within a few years. A parking structure now stands in its place.
