Information for this tour was contributed by Charles Van Bibber & Ken Roe.
The Fox Theatre was built in 1948, replacing the Granada Theatre which had stood on the site until it was destroyed by fire. The Fox had a typical Skouras interior treatment which was in favor in the late 1940s. One of two Fox Theatres in Inglewood, this old movie house hangs on for dear life.
This was the last major theatre designed by Charles Lee. It opened on 31st March 1949 and was built by Fox West Coast Theatres. Later it was operated by Mann Theatres and ended its days as a movie theatre showing Spanish language films. The auditorium was badly damaged by fire in 1993, and the entire building awaits its fate.
