James B. Lima—the manager in the above article, was later partner in some theatres in San Jose, including the Garden, in Willow Glen, and the Burbank, in the unincorporated Burbank neighborhood. His partner in these ventures was Ben Levin.

James B. Lima was my grandfather. My mom grew up in Livermore, where she met my dad. They we’re married in 1947 and both families moved to San José, where my grandfather and Ben Levin continued building and buying theatres. These included the Garden (where I spent much of my childhood), the Crest/Victory, the Liberty, and the José.
