The Milwaukee Building Company, operated by Meyer and Holler, architects for many movie theatres in Southern California, designed the Granada Theatre for Antone Soethout, who financed its construction in 04/1921; the name had changed to the West Coast Hollywood Theatre by at least 1929; it was known as the "Oriental Theatre" from at least 1932 until its closing in 01/1985. In 2005, the building operated as a Guitar Center retail store and portions of it still had remnants of its theatrical past.

The Granada Theatre, done in the Spanish Colonial Revival Style, seated approximately 896 in the 1920s.
