I forgot to add that the squad car scene in “American Graffiti” was also shot in front of the then State Theatre. The lot they pull out of is still there as well. Sadly the below Movieclips version does not hold for the reaction shot of the police in their damaged car.

Overview still needs to be updated. The Rialto was still in operation when it burned. “Midnight Express” released October 6th, 1978 was on the marquee, at the time of the December 27th, 1978 fire.
