I went to Chaffey High School in Ontario California with Bill Hertz's

BobHarlow commented about California Theater on Apr 4, 2008 at 9:15 pm

I remember going with my parents to see “Giant” in 1956 or ‘57.
It was unusual for a movie that popular to show at the California.
Most of the big films played up the street at the Granada.

In the early ‘60’s, the California ran triple features of horror
and action movies . Lots of AIP releases and Steve Reeves gladiator
type films.

The California had a balcony that was closed most of the time.

I lived in or near Upland in the ‘50’s and '60s.

"Love Me Tender” a re-release of “Man Who Knew Too Much” with"Trouble
with Harry" as 2nd feature, “The Bold & The Brave” and many more.

the admission was 50cents for adults 35 cents for kids. Nice neighborhood theater.

BobHarlow commented about Fox Theater on Feb 17, 2007 at 6:00 am

Lived in Bakersfield in the early to late ‘70’s. By that time
the Fox was not in the best of shape. Still,it was fun to go to movies there. Remember seeing “The Sting” and “Chinatown” and many
Disney films.

I saw many movies at the Granada in the ‘50’s and '60’s.
The theater had a balcony section.
Some of the films I saw there : “Artists & Models”, “20,000 Leauges Under The Sea”, “Psycho”,“Breakfast At Tiffany’s”, “Dr. No”, “Anatomy of A Murder”,
“Li'l Abner”, countless others

BobHarlow commented about De Anza Theatre on Feb 16, 2007 at 1:04 pm

The De Anza was a great theater, not as great as the Fox Riverside,
but it had a big screen and good projection.

I remember seeing “The FBI Story” “Teacher’s Pet” and I think
“Spirit of St. Louis”

BobHarlow commented about Fox Performing Arts Center on Feb 16, 2007 at 12:59 pm

My family lived in Corona California in the late ‘50’s and we used to
go to the Fox because it had a lot of the best movies and was the best theater around. I liked it better than most of the Hollywood
theaters. I was 10 years old in 1958.

I remember seeing “Auntie Mame” “The Vikings” “Rio Bravo” and
“North By Northwest”. The screen was huge and the picture was always
bright.It was a great experience to see a movie there.
