Camera One has been inhabited by the excellent San Jose art gallery, GalleryAD. From their website (www.galleryad.com):
“Yes, it’s true. After five of the best years we could imagine in a former iron works foundry throwing monthly art happenings, Anno Domini will be moving into the former Camera One Theater building on South First Street. Thanks to friends, artists, audience and city agency folks that believe in A.D., we have finally signed a lease for the new location to bring the gallery smack in the middle of the heart of the city.”
Best of luck!
A sign posted on the door says that the building is “Not fit for human occupation.”
I was told today that the Mexico has been sold to a local business owner. Let’s hope it doesn’t get turned into retail space.
The actual address is 41 N. Santa Cruz Ave. The two theaters now seat 200 and 225. There is talk of twinning theater #1.
This was a General Cinemas theater, and it closed around 1999. I believe it was demolished in 2002. A lot of the equipment (including all of the Cinemeccanica projectors) was purchased by the Camera Cinemas, removed just weeks before demolition, and is now in use at the Camera 7 Cinemas in Campbell, CA.
