Winema theater dedicated
SCOTIA, CA — 90 years after opening, the Wi'ne'ma Theatre is being dedicated. Due to the special occasion, research has been conducted to discover the theatre name’s origins.
Native Sons statewide officers will be in attendance for a dedication today at 1 p.m. at the Wi'ne'ma Theatre. The organization will install a plaque commemorating the history of the nearly 90-year-old theater, considered by many as one of America’s cinema treasures.
A statement Jacobs made about the Wi'ne'ma Theatre is as follows: “It is more than a theater. It is a place of friendly assemblage. It is intimately connected with a great industry. Its natural surroundings are magnificent. Its design should be no more commercial than its purpose — that is, not at all. When we face nature, man doesn’t attempt to compete in splendor. It can’t be done. We only seek to harmonize our buildings with what we find.”
