My Grandfather Elvin B. Robinson started the Monte Vista theatre in the early 50’s with my uncle Ralph Deaton as the manager. A few years later E.B. sold ½ of the business to my father Elvin F. Robinson who became a 50/50 silent partner with Ralph Deaton which lasted until the theatres closing. Ralph continued to manage the the business until the end. My Grandmother, Corrine Robinson continued to own the physically
property until it was sold in the late 80’s. The theatre was demolished in the mid 90’s by a local church who bought the property. I recall the great times my cousin Joe Deaton and I had working and playing at the theatre and of course watching the same movies over and over.
