Georgia Theatre

1002 W. 9th St. Los Angeles, CA 90015
| map |

Opened: 1914 or earlier. They're advertising in 1914 as Gore's Theatre, M. Gore, proprietor. The theatre was on the south side of 9th just west of Georgia St. It was three blocks west of Figueroa.

It's in the 1914 city directory as Gore's Theatre (with the address listed wrongly as 102 W. 9th). It was again listed as Gore's in the 1915 directory.

In 1916 Nacim Rahpany was listed as the proprietor of a theatre at 1004 W. 9th St. In 1917, it's the New Georgia at the same address. In the 1918 through 1923 directories it's listed as the New Georgia at 1002 W. 9th.

It was just the Georgia Theatre from at least 1929 through 1936. In the 1939 city directory this location was listed as the Capitol Theatre, perhaps a typo.

Architect: Unknown

Seating: 385

Status: Demolished. The closing date is unknown. It's in the path of the 110 Freeway.

More Information: Cinema Treasures has a page on the Georgia Theatre but there isn't much known about this one.
