State Theater
703 S. Broadway
Los Angeles, CA

From Cinema Treasures:

The former Loew’s State Theatre was the first broadway picture palace to convert to Spanish-language films in 1963.

The theater became the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God after riots, recession and earthquakes doomed downtown Los Angeles and most of the Broadway theaters in the 1990s. During this turbulent period, the State could no longer afford to show movies and was shuttered.
