Mission Theatre

The Mission Theatre opened on November 26, 1924 with Margaret Livingston in “The Chorus Lady”. I remember attending films at the Mission Theatre with my parents (1950’s-1960’s). Not as “flashy” as other downtown venues (e.g., California Theatre, Fox Theatre, Orpheum Theatre, etc.)

Always a great double feature program; they showed a lot of First and second run shows. I recall Victor Mature flicks were popular, and SAMSON AND DELILAH seemed booked there every time it was re-released! A small neighborhood theater, which was attached to the behemoth ORPHEUM THEATER- down on the corner AKA: PANTAGES.
