ALAMEDA, CA — Continuing to polish every last part, the Alameda Theatre’s murals are almost completely restored.

After several weeks of effort, months of anticipation and years of hope, the original mural in the Alameda Theatre’s mezzanine lobby is nearly restored.

“I’ve really enjoyed working on it,” said painter Jane Armstrong. “The days really go fast, and sometimes I forget to take lunch.”

Alamedans got their first glimpses of the mural back in 1932, when the art deco-inspired movie theater — designed by noted San Francisco architect Timothy Pfluger — opened its doors.
