United Artists Theatre

United Artists Theater in Los Angeles, is now called the Texaco Building and is no longer operated by United Artists. It was once the tallest building in Los Angeles for one day after it was completed in 1927. The building is located at 929 South Broadway in Los Angeles. The building is 242 feet tall and has 13 floors. It was designed by Walker and Eisen architecture firm along with Scofield Engineering Construction. Since it was vacated by United Artists, the structure has been used for a variety of purposes including office space and a house of worship.

United Artists is a United Sates film studio founded in 1919 by a group of film executives. The company recently was reshaped in 2006 through a partnership between actor Tom Cruise, his production partner Paula Wagner, and Metro-Goldwyn Mayer Studios. One of the original founding members was famous actor Charlie Chaplin. Each of the four founding members owned a 20% stake in the company. The idea came from the four wanting to have more control over the types of work they wanted to create. Over the years United Artists has produced some of the biggest films in the world Fiddler on the Roof, Midnight Cowboy, Pink Panther, James Bond, and the Rocky series.
