This theatre was designed by L.A.Smith back in 1925 with an Egyptian design.
When this theatre opened it was known as the Bard's Adams Theatre or Bard's West Adams Theatre. Then the Fox Adams during its Fox West Coast years. After World War II it became the Kabucki Theatre. And the late 80's-early 90's as the Apollo West, a black cabaret theatre. And now a church.
Bard's was a small theatre circuit in Los Angeles. It had theatres in East Hollywood (Vista Theatre), Pasadena (now known as the Academy and also known as the Colorado), Glendale (Sands), Alhambra (Garfield), Downtown LA (Town & Olympic).
The Vista, Academy and the Garfield were all of Egyptian design.
