The Fox Cabrillo Theatre
We may never know what the Cabrillo looked like originally. It was a Meyer and Holler design dating from 1923. The photo here, from the Los Angeles Public Library, looks like the auditorium after a 40s "modernization." It does look like they left the columns on each side alone as well as the lovely asbestos curtain. The poor Cabrillo, which was at 115 W. 7th St. in San Pedro, was demolished in 1958. You'll find more data and photos on our page for San Pedro Theatres.
