What a tremendous amount of valuable information! Great research job, RSM3853.
Thanks to all at Cinema Treasures for what you continue to do for the history and futures of cinemas around the world. Happy Thanksgiving to you all.
I added a photo to the gallery of Wickenburg Way from the late 1960s. It is a Kodachrome slide that I found in a projector from an estate sale.
I was thrilled to see that the theatre is not only still standing but still in operation.

I learned this week of the passing of longtime Cove manager Spencer Wilson. I was lucky to know him. http://www.lajollalight.com/2011/11/26/former-cove-theater-manager-spence-wilson-99-died-on-thanksgiving-day/
I think this is fantastic news! Anyone who wonders how much demand there will be needs to look just blocks away to the summertime Cinespia screenings at Hollywood Forever, which pack viewers in and have people coming from all over southern California to attend. I am looking forward to experiencing what the Academy has in store.
Thank you all for another year!
Thanks for the info, saps. I enjoyed in the documentary how they revisited the theatres of Woody’s youth.
Diane Keaton worked here! She shared that with Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show”, 11/16/11.
I am going to need to get on that “top uploaders” list….
There’s a blog post on how to do it on the main CT page.
Thank you, Ed! I appreciate it very much. Is the elevated platform still there?
The photographer, Vivian Maier, spent time photographing urban areas of both New York and Chicago. Thank you with your help putting a spot on the map for me.
I love the new site, and am especially looking forward to uploading pictures.
Congrats and thanks to all involved!
The Google car needs to hit downtown Pomona again now that the theatre is renovated and its marquee so beautiful!
I am so excited!!!!
That sounds fantastic!
The Fox Pomona can be seen in the “Goodbye, Michael” episode of “The Office”, which aired on 4/28/11.
For those in the know, is this View link the Corona the page is about?

Thanks, Don! I will give him a call. It was my first time in Inglewood, and between the theatres and other wonderful locations to photograph I am already planning my next trip.
There are several signs on the boarded up front of the Fox, with old photos and quotes from supporters regarding the theatre. There’s also pictures of the Crest in Sacremento, which is much like the Fox and has been restored to its former beauty.
The group who is trying to preserve the theatre is asking those who are concerned for its future to leave a message at (310) 712-7049 stating why the theatre’s future is important to them.
