The Arcade Theatre


















The Arcade, at 534 S. Broadway, is a 1910 building by the firm then known as Morgan and Walls, later with the addition of Stiles O. Clements to become Morgan, Walls and Clements. It opened as the Pantages, the first for the chain in the city. The 40s vintage photo from the Theatre Historical Society appears in Jose Huizar's Bringing Back Broadway album on Flickr. See our Arcade Theatre pages for many more views of the theatre. This one, sadly, seems to be the only surviving vintage view of the auditorium.
