The Fox Redondo
The Fox in Redondo Beach was a design by John Paxton Perrine. The auditorium view is a photo in the collection of the Los Angeles Public Library. The theatre, at Diamond and Pacific, was right on the beach. Opened in 1929, it closed in 1972 and was demolished the next year for a hotel project that fizzled. See our page on the Fox Redondo for more information.
