It’s easier to assert that a photo exists than it is to clear the junk off the scanner, dust off the picture, scan it, oops! dust off the scanner glass too … Anyway I have a scan; you can send me mail if you want a copy –

I remember seeing just three movies at the Obipso: The War Game, Dr. Strangelove, and The Godfather. The Obispo had a rectangle of indirect neon lighting on the ceiling – perhaps green lighting against a blue or purple ceiling. The spirals in the Fox Fremont’s ceiling were rather ostentatious by contrast.

The title page SLO Senior High 1976 yearbook features a color night shot of the front of the Obispo Theatre. I think Tim Olson was the photographer. As you know from preceding comments, by the time the yearbook was distributed the Obispo gone.
