Some nice photos (taken after it closed down) are here:

Oh, a couple of vintage ads are there, too.

The Ranch was renowned for the themed dusk-to-dawn shows that played there, especially the Halloween Horror-Thons. There’s an article written about them on that page that’s a lot of fun to read.

On a rainy night on 10/25/67, I saw the John Ford movie “Seven Women” at the Ranch. I did not stay for the second feature which was “House of a 1000 Dolls”.
