Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2020
Significance: This is the most advanced Streamline Moderne theater in the Los Angeles area. The Academy was designed by one of California's best known theater architects. The interesting cylindrical forms crescendo to the main pylon, which provides an advertising feature of adequate scale to attract automotive traffic along the thoroughfares of the vicinity. The adjacent parking lot to the west of the Theater is an integral element in its design.
