What a shame that they gutted and multiscreened it. The old Isis was a treat. If Aspen can’t save a historic theater, who can?

Removal of the free-standing ticket booth was a crime. The plaza looks open and lifeless now.

Removal of the free-standing ticket book was a crime. The plaza looks open and lifeless now.

The Bruin was a flower shop, and judging by the age of the signage, it looks like it had been around a while. Definitely the same vintage, though. The Bruin is a little art deco gem; I’d love to see it restored and turned into something!

I moved to the Palisades in 1980, and by then it was already Norris Hardware/Bay Pharmacy. I remember hearing rumors from old-timers that it had been a movie theater, so I’d put the closing date closer to the mid-1970s.
