The Dome Theatre
The Dome at the head of the Ocean Park pier opened in 1925. Actually this design by Clifford A. Balch was the second Dome -- a replacement for one that had burned in the 1924 pier fire. The photo comes from the December 28, 1929 issue of Motion Picture News, part of a spread on various Fox West Coast Theatres. The Dome's building got repurposed as a ride at Pacific Ocean Park and later was demolished. See our page on the two Dome Theatres for many more photos.
