Listed in the 1941 and 1943 editions of Film Daily Yearbook as the Tower Theatre with 550 seats. In the 1950 edition of F.D.Y it is still the Tower Theatre with a seating capacity of 575. The address is given as E. Tulare Street and E. El Monte Way (which today maps out as E. Kamm Avenue)

The 1952 edition of F.D.Y. has it listed as the Maya Theater, with the same address and seating details as in the 1950 edition. on June 25, 2008 at 7:35 pm

That address (technically 100 N. Perry) jives with this former theatre / Gospel Light Baptist Church (photo April 2008):

Looking at the photos of this theater, I think it’s almost certain that this is the theater mentioned in Southwest Builder & Contractor of November 1, 1940: “Theater (Dinuba)— Leo L. Smith, 249 N. K St., Dinuba, has started work on a theater at Dinuba for Hollywood interests…cost $35,000. S. Charles Lee, architect.”
