The Chris Farley film “Black Sheep” had a scene shot here, and gives a pretty good sense of the grandeur of the lobby.
The theater seems to be in constant peril. Every two years the lease expires and the newspaper runs stories of it being on the verge of being bought out by a neighboring boutique or winery. Luckily this hasn’t happened…yet.
Shows second run movies to this day.
Saw Raiders of the Lost Ark on my parent’s wedding anniversary, Empire Strikes Back, and Ghostbusters twice (the next year on a double-bill with the premiere of Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure) here.
Saw Sexy Beast with my father here in 2000, then snuck into Planet of the Apes!
I saw many movies here as a kid in the ‘80s – Goonies, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, Kurosawa’s Ran. Beautiful walls with twinkling stars and inlaid images of gold miners.
