Cakeight commented about Crest Theatre on Nov 8, 2009 at 1:12 am

I’ve admired the beautiful exterior of the Crest for years. I happened to be in Fresno today, so I stopped by the theatre to take a few pictures-

While I was there, I had a lovely chat with the current owner, Gloria Leon. She invited me in (as she does anyone she happens to see) and showed me the amazing interior. Although few lights were on, it was still beautiful -

The theatre is currently being rented out for concerts, film screenings and other events. Gloria and her small, but dedicated crew are hoping to restore the building to its former glory. With a very limited budget, they are trying to renovate and paint as much as they can. She said the next big project is the restoration of the marquee, which is currently lacking much of its neon. They are also hoping to find someone to repair the beautiful, but cracking terrazzo entry. Gloria said that they are trying to start a fundraising project, but that they aren’t having much success. I told her that I would try to get the ball rolling here at Cinema Treasures. The Crest Theatre contact information is listed at the top of this page. Let’s see if we can help bring another theatre back!! :)

I remember watching movies at the Porter as a child in the 1980’s. The building is currently undergoing renovations and is for lease.
