I know the people operating it when i was last there in ‘96 worked very hard to keep it running. I always thought it was the pride of Nob Hill. It’s a shame if the area can’t support it any more.

This is the coolest theatre i’ve seen in some time. I’m not surprised it was in New Mexico. They have lots of great small town movie houses.Thanks for sharing it

This great theatre is now open for “Bali-wood” presentations. The local media thus far has paid no attention to it. I think it’s kinda cool!

That’s correct.I worked there for about 6 months in ‘85 ,and we’d report the weekend receipts to the ATG head office in Arizona. There were a couple of us who worked there,myself included,that believe the theatre’s haunted.Just about every one involved with the place from when I worked there has since died or comitted suicide. (John D,if you’re still around send me an email**)

Dowser,
You might want to contact the non profit “Fresno Filmworks” group , who presently showcase one indi/art film per month at the TOWER theatre.They are looking for a permanent home.I’d be willing to help out with miscl tasks. I live right down the street. Always thought it was a perfect size venue to attract some national touring music acts too,to help make end$ meet.

Great News!! I took a trip out to see this theatre,and the marquee lists “Fockers” and “Elektra” Now Showing! I was so shocked,that i almost crashed into it. I plan to catch films here regularly,and would encourage others in the central San Joaquin valley to do the same….gotta support it,or lose it.

I love this theatre! Heading north up Main street it dramatically appears in the distance and dominates everything in the vicinity..A sureal god of a former movie palace. Still “for lease”

STELLARB commented about California Theatre on Dec 21, 2004 at 5:16 am

I was there for the 7:30 showing this past saturday. What a great evening it was…I had only ever been inside this palace once befor, to see “Scrooge” in 1972.Even back then it was a very impressive house,despite it’s decline…I love the new vertical marquee too…so much classier than the old FOX marquee that hung outside for decades.I also had the pleasure of meeting Gary Parks. I’ll look forward to the next movie night at the California!

I was living in Albuquerque when this theatre closed its doors in the summer of ‘95…“WATERWORLD” was the last movie to play here.

STELLARB commented about Cove Theater on Oct 29, 2004 at 7:03 pm

This poor little movie house is still standing.I checked it out last week,and took a couple of pictures of it.It’s been defaced ,and abused,but still has it’s large marquee with “COVE” cut-out style lettering,which is stripped of all neon.The theatre’s bird cage style ticket booth is still there,and entrance doors which lead upstairs to crack house apartments still have their port hole windows.The building also house’s a church,clothing store,and taco stand.I’ll be happy to share my pictures with you via email.

I saw a few alternative rock shows here in the mid 90’s! It’s a great room! Open balcony,and bar upstairs…inside decor was mostly brown,and rustic.

As of this posting,the HARDY’S theatre is currently a mexican church…Lobby has been all painted over in white (yikes!).If you look closely,you can see that the old “Liberty” name still survives,painted in the bricks on the side of the building.

STELLARB commented about Jose Theatre on Oct 14, 2004 at 5:14 am

When I was a kid growing up in the greater San Jose area,me and my friends would catch a bus out of the suburbs,and head to the fabled “Jose” ,where we could watch films that are parents would never dream of taking us to…One of the best grindhouse’s EVER! Mostly all of the films were rated R ,and were very violent,gory,and sexy…Never asked to show proof of age. We were 12! This place served a large area of moviegoers , and filled a real need for the many independant genres that they featured…There were kids like me from all over the valley,who’d show up on buses,or get rides from their cousins or big brothers. It’s a legendary place!

Pop singer Michelle Branch used exterior shots of this wonderful theatre for her “Goodbye to you” video in 2002!
