Located at the southwest corner of Figueroa Street and West Santa Barbara Boulevard; West Santa Barbara Avenue is now known as West Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard;

Hebbard designed the Figueroa--a retail, office and theatre building--for Fred A. Miller; the theatre was Class A reinforced concrete construction, while the office portion was of Class C brick construction. The entire project cost $300,000. If extant, it would stand across the street from the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena.

The theatre had a Wurlitzer Theatre organ (opus #1162) style 235, when it opened in 1925; the theater and office building had a large sign on the roof; cost estimates varied between reports made in the Southwest Builder and Contractor made 01/02/1925 and 02/27/1925; the earlier article indicated the cost of the theatre, office and retail spaces would be $300,000, the latter said $200,000.

Demolished in the late 1960s; in 2007, a Chevron gas station and McDonald's Restaurant occupied the site.
