The Chotiner’s La Brea Theatre was opened in 1926. By 1934 it had been taken over by Fox West Coast Theatres. It later became the Art La Brea Theatre. On August 5, 1960 it became the Toho La Brea Theatre which ran films from Japan. (The Toho also opened a theatre off Broadway in Times Square, NY in the 1960’s.) The old marquee was taken off in the mid-1980’s.
If you have the DVD for the film "How the West Was Won" in the short film about "HTWWW", you can see a shot of this old Fox theatre.
Today, the former Fox La Brea Theatre is used as a church.
