The Fox Uptown Theatre
The Uptown, at 1008 S. Western Ave., was a 1926 design by Lewis A. Smith for West Coast Theatres. The location, 5 blocks south of Wilshire, later put it into competition with the Warner Bros. Wiltern Theatre at Wilshire and Western. The photo, from the Los Angeles Public Library collection, dates from the early 40s after the house had been given a Fox West Coast re-do. See our page on the Fox Uptown for more views. The 1700 seat theatre was demolished in the 60s.
