The May 28, 1937, issue of Southwest Builder & Contractor said that Ben Aranda would build a new, 750-seat theater for himself at Brawley. The architect for the project was Walter Webber.

I’m not sure whether or not Walter I. Webber had a solo practice at this time. He had earlier been a member of the firm of Webber & Spaulding, architects of the Avalon Theatre and the Casino, in which the theater was located, at Avalon, on Santa Catalina Island. Nobody seems to know when the firm was dissolved.
