Previous Names: Warner's Photoplay Theatre
The opening of Warner’s Photoplay Theatre on August 13, 1914, was reported as a great success in the Pasadena Star News the following day. The place was packed to the doors, the report said.
Located in former commercial premises in what was then the heart of Pasadena’s downtown, the new cinema was operated by H.L. Warner (no relation to the Warner Brothers), who would go on to build the larger Warner Egyptian Theatre (later called the Uptown Theatre) a couple of miles farther east, in 1924.
The Pasadena Photoplay Theatre was closed by 1930, the year in which the building that now occupies the theatre’s former site was built.
