The Beacon was owned/managed by the Kridel family who also operated the Palace, Orange and the Pix Newsreel, Orange as well as the Troy Hills Drive-In. It had an enormous wrap-around marquee and as I remember was one of the most spotlessly clean theaters I have ever seen.
The Beacon was a subsequent run theater with conventional orchestra seating, and a “smoking loge” which was really a fairly large stadium arrangement rather than a balcony. It was sister theater to the Palace in Orange, and sadly demolished to make way for the interstate freeway project (which, in my opinion, also demolished many beautiful neighborhoods). It served its final six months as a soft-core porn house.
