Here’s a good shot of 5th & Main, with The Princess Theater showing The Shaggy Dog with Tommy Kirk & Fred MacMurray and the Mating Game with Debbie Reynolds & Tony Randall. Both films were released in 1959. View link

Martineaux commented about Northside Theatre on Nov 9, 2008 at 6:38 pm

What a great little oasis. The Northside, pizza, burritos, and the Cheshire Cat, and Rather Ripped Records right down the street. I used to see flicks at the University Theater in Seattle & got to talking with the owner there in the 80’s, & when he mentioned he’d had a theater in Berkely, I mentioned the Northside, & he said he’d owned that until his son or someone had gotten thumped in the overflow of an antiwar protest in Berkeley, and he bailed for Seattle. My friend Joan from Bainbridge Island worked at one of the places on Euclid, & the first time I went there, I fell in love with the building.
