Entrepreneur and film exhibitor. Built the Los Angeles Theatre in the Broadway Historic Theatre District of Downtown L.A. in 1931 in the early years of the Great Depression at a cost of over $1.5 million and erected in 3 months. Designed by the renowned movie theatre architect S. Charles Lee, the theatre is a very opulent, meticulously constructed and an extravagently elaborate structure, replicating the Palace at Versailles in France. Silent screen comedian Charlie Chaplin assisted in funding for the completion and premiered his "City Lights" motion picture there.
