The Fulton became a bowling alley and in the 1960s the Stardust Ballroom. In 1983 it returned to use as a theater (Cine Colonial) that showed movies from Mexico – catering to the largely Hispanic neighborhood in which it was located – and when Clemente Martinez Elementary School was built in the late 1980s the theater was demolished to form part of the schoolyard.
