The Marin Theater actually is only a three screen operation; each of the three could only qualify as “screening rooms” at best, as they barely have a capacity of more than 100 apiece.

The Marin actually dates to the 1920s. In an old photo taken from a plane, it shows as an ornamented facade typical of the period.

The first time I saw the Marin in the 1980s, it was still a single screen. The facade was painted brown and was completely plain. However the marquee was a rectangular canopy without reader boards, but with bands of neon and the name MARIN, in neon, centered on the marquee front.

The three screens now inside face sideways to the original axis of the auditorium.

The Marin Theater was the first Movie in Marin County to play Woodstock. I went to go and see Woodstock on the night it opened at the Marin. It was really cool because all of my friends were there too. We had a great time that night.
