The Beverly Theater, domed building, center, is temporarily closed for remodeling in this aerial view of Beverly Hills. Photograph dated: May 26, 1978.

Exterior of a Moorish style structure, located at 206 N. Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills, originally known as the Beverly Theatre; a Christmas garland hangs from above. Designed by L.A. Smith, this was the first vaudeville and movie theater to be built in Beverly Hills. In 1977, after decades of serving as a movie house, the building was closed. The interior was gutted and redesigned to accommodate commercial use; it was occupied by Fiorucci, the boutique seen here, and later an Israeli bank. Despite hopes that the structure could be saved, it was demolished in 2005.
