The LA Library thinks that this theater was converted into a dry cleaners. Are they correct?

Here is an artist’s conception of the Encino Theater, courtesy of the LA Library. Does it look like the real thing?

I hear that this theater had meters on the seats – 25 cents for each ten minutes…

I think it may have just been good marketing. Motion picture exhibition was in its beginning stages in 1909, so I think anything that suggested “new” or “modern” would appeal to the potential customer.
