Theatrical producer Oliver Morosco built the Morosco Theatre in 1913 as his Los Angeles base. After he moved on in the 1920s, the theater continued to host live shows until it was converted for motion picture use during the Depression. It ran an all-newsreel program for many years. The theater eventually resorted to Spanish-language films until it was closed in 1987 and converted for retail use. The auditorium has been converted into a dance club.
