The theater was located on Whitier Blvd. just south of Hadley. I think there is a Walgreen’s there now. There are some automotive repair shops next to where is used to stand. I was just 8 years old when the quake happened and I do remember the old Quad. It has since been replaced with a generic strip mall. Also if you don’t know this by now, they demolished the Whittwood mall just recently.
They are building another generic strip mall with a Target or Wallmart. Whittier just lost another piece of history that made the city a great place. Seems like the city is trying to turn Whittier into another typical suburban “cookie cutter” city, which is sad because Whittier has so much history and character. Enjoy visiting uptown and some landmarks while you can. Included with the demo of the Whittwood was the Regal Cinema theater on Scott Ave. I just drove by it last weekend, and that too is gone.
