The Lake City was a very basic neighborhood theater devoid of any charm. It was built by Sterling in the late 40’s and ran it until it closed in the early 80’s. The theater had about 800 seats.

I saw every BIG movie of my youth at this GREAT theater. The first two SUPERMAN films (the line for SUPERMAN II was so long it went around the corner!) and the first two STAR TREK films, yes, this is where I saw ST: THE WRATH OF KHAN! (RIP Ricardo Montalban)
Also saw THE GALAXY EXPRESS/POPEYE here in 1980 and NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN in 1983!
For me, this theater had all the CHARM in the world!

I mean it looks like something I would have done,when you get a “nut” like me in a theatre it shows on the Marquee.

Only saw a few films here when young but it seemed large and had a very plush curtain that was used before and after the show. They showed 1st run films mostly. It had quite a lot of style and loved the marquee. Art moderne.
