Little is known about the Enterprise Theater. It operated at least 1912-1914. A taqueria is currently in the building.

The taqueria at this location is in the original Enterprise Theater building. If you look above the awning you can see the word “Enterprise” inscribed in stone.

According to the building permit (dated May 27, 1912), the architect is Fritz Lang. It is unclear whether this is the same Fritz Lang who directed Metropolis (1924), as he would have been 21 or 22 at the time. However, the famous Fritz Lang’s father Anton was an architect.

LM, not to step on your toes, but I wanted to make sure this photo was posted, as it was referred to directly above.

Already been stripped and plundered. They add a new photo every few weeks or so.

Status should be closed and function should be restaurant, or taqueria if you want to be more precise.

I’m not referring to a photo, I actually walked down the street and looked at the building. I do have a photo, but am waiting for the online submission feature to be restored.
