mapesman commented about Venice Theatre on Jul 21, 2010 at 9:59 pm

The first movie theater I remember is the old Venice/California theater. I recall seeing the movie “The Third Man” starring Joseph Cotton and Orson Wells around 1949. I also remember going to Saturday Matinees which included cartoons, Movietone News, a Flash Gordon Serial, plus a double feature. This had to be shortly before it was demolished. After that, it was the Dome and Rosemary theaters in Ocean Park.
