The Figueroa Theatre opened November 13, 1925 with the world premiere of Cecil B. DeMille’s “The Road to Yesterday” starring Joseph Schildkraut. It was built for and operated by Fred Miller and the L. Lou Bard chain Far West Theatres Inc. and was located at S. Figueroa Street and Santa Barbara Avenue (now known as W. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard) with entrances on both streets. It was equipped with a Wurlitzer theatre pipe organ. It was later taken over by Fox West Coast Theatres.
The Fox Figueroa Theatre was razed in the late-1960’s, along with its large roof top sign and now on the site is housing. The former theatre’s location is directly across the street from the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena.
