The theatre still looks exactly like the photos posted by ken mc back in 2007. The Asian proprieter put up a sign last year he was sub-leasing one third of the store, and he has a few leasee’s so now he has a few leasees, and it’s sort of a swapmeet. As a child, I used to accompany my grandparents to this theatre to see Mexican movies(Spanish language) back in the mid-60s. So, I remember much of this theatre in it’s movie heyday. The original tile floor found in the entrance and lobby area of the theatre remains, and the area where the theatre restrooms used to be is boarded up. The 2nd floor windows where the film projectors showed the fill are still there. The theatre floor used to slope down to the screen (as do most old movie theatres), but the floor is now even (hardwood floors that make a noise when you walk on them). As a child, I thought the theatre was so big, but now as an adult I can see that it really wasn’t that big. Sad to see what the theatre has come to, but also a tiny bit of gladness that it’s still being used (even as a dollar store/swapmeet) and hasn’t gone the way of the bulldozer.
