St. Ignatius of Loyola was the founder of the Society of Jesus. While the Loyola Theater has undergone a transformation from its original purpose, it has never been used for religion. Likely named for Loyola Marymount University down the block, this Streamline Modern theater was designed by Clarence J. Smale. Smale designed 9 theaters in the Los Angeles area, but none of them are in use for their original purpose. The Loyola building has been converted into medical offices.
