The theatre had stage productions in the 60s, I was taken to a wonderful “Fiddler on the Roof.”

This was the first place I went to the movies, circa-63 to65. They had a family “G” rated policy. Mostly Disney. Saw “The Glass Bottom Boat” “That Darned Cat” and some others. It was one of the things I hated leaving when we left Park Forest.

GREGlookingback commented about Valencia Theater on Jan 4, 2012 at 8:39 am

When the Valenica closed, there was an article pointing out that it went back to Vaudville Days and Ann Margret had watched “Rebel Without A Cause” there countless times. I saw rereleases of “American Graffitti” there, as well as MASH. Also a terrible Christopher Lee Fu Manchu Movie, and the first Billy Jack movie “Born Losers.” Best of all was “Kansas City Bomber” on a double bill with “Ben.” Compared to the Varsity, it was a real little dump, but it had a great location and from the comments some real memorable events.
