Regal Ukiah Stadium 6

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Built as a single-screen theater around the late-1940’s by Redwood Theatres chain. This theater was designed in Streamline Moderne style, but the interior of the original theater has been removed and the walls covered in red curtains.

The main auditorium had its stage removed and was split in two in the late-1960’s or early-1970’s. In 1980, two screens were added, and again, in 2000, another two were added, bringing the total to six screens.

The large, stylized pylon sign in front of the theater is one of a small handful of landmarks in Ukiah to be officially recognized and given protective status.

Pretty odd to see “Barbara Geddes” on the marquee in the pic above. Do you suppose they thought “Bel” was her middle name?

My first job: Back in 73'-74' I was nine years old and bored. I walked into the Ukiah theatre while it was closed and asked the manager for a job. He handed me a coffee can and a putty knife and said scrape as much gum and candy off the floor as possible. I remember filling that can more than a few times.
I was paid in free passes and soda. It felt like I did that job for a year; it was probably more like a few weeks. I was very proud that I could take my family to the movies with my pay. I love that theatre.

The trees don’t seem to be too oppressive to the view at this point in time. My GoogleEarth pics should be on the map shortly…

Less than 5% of the original interior survives.
