A small theatre, one center aisle, at the end of the 5 streetcar line on Eagle Rock Boulevard in the Eagle Rock section of Los Angeles. Opened as the United Theatre by the United Theatres circuit in October 1922. It was closed on June 18, 1926. On October 14, 1926 it was reopened as Sugar’s Eagle Rock Theatre. It had been equipped with a pipe organ. It was later renamed Eagle Rock Theatre. On November 6, 1936 it was renamed Sierra Theatre. During the early-1940’s called the “Dirty Dime”. It cost 10 cents admission. It was managed by the same person as the Eagle Theatre. He could be seen hurrying between the two theatres on a Friday night when the local teenagers were to be found in one or the other.
The last film I viewed there was, “The Bicycle Thief” the viewing of which was suggested as a homework assignment in 1946 or 1947. The Sierra Theatre was closed on September 22, 1957 with Gordon Scott in “Tarzan and the Last Safari” & Steve Terrell in “Invasion of the Saucermen”.
