The Fox Cabrillo Theatre occupied the site of the Dodson House, the residence of early Anglo settlers to San Pedro, the port area of Los Angeles, CA; it seated 1,518 people when it opened 11/15/1923; along with many other Los Angeles-area theatres, it was wired for sound in 1928; it had a mixed-use configuration, also like so many Los Angeles theatre properties of the 1920s; it was two stories tall, and had commercial storefronts on the first floor and office space on the second; it was the anchor tenant of a mixed-use retail/office building that became a favorite investment for developers in Southern California during the 1920s.

Demolished; a parking lot replaced the Fox Cabrillo Theatre.
