After being acquired by the Oakland Tribune, the ground floor was the printing plant and the composing room. Upstairs (balcony?) were offices, including the features department and the morgue (library). This was prior to the paper being moved to Jack London Square; it has moved back to the Tribune building.

There was a small theater in the old El Cerrito Plaza in the early 70’s. I don’t remember the name.

It was an art house in the mid-late 60’s. I remember seeing the French film A Man and a Woman there. It played forever. Some friends who didn’t have a car lived a block away and complained that the whole time they lived there (9 months), the Elmwood only showed that film.

The Elmwood is currently closed for remodeling.

I attended Mills College in the early sixties. This was the only theater we could walk to. I have a vague memory that it wasn’t first run at that time. This was possible during the art films stage.

It was located at 2510 Durant Avenue and was originally called the Campus. No idea how (or if) it was related to the Campus Theater located on Bancroft Way.

3192 Adeline Steet is also listed as the address for the South Berkeley Photo Theatre. I also saw an address of 2643 Shattuck Avenue for the Pastime. There is a lot of inconsistency in old city directories!

I found another (?) theater called Haselbusch & Du Milieu at 1810 Harmon. Given how street numbers have changed, it may be the same theater.
