Less than 5% of the original interior survives.

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…

Here is a three part ad that was in the Ukiah News in December 1955:

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.

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

I started going to the Ukiah Theatre in the early sixties. My Dad took me to see Hatari when I was 5 or 6. During summer vacation they would have a free wednesday matinees, and every kid in Ukiah and the surrounding area would be there. In the late sixties I could buy a theatre ticket for 35 cents, and get a Jolly Rancher stick for a nickel. Times have sure changed…. Mike McInerney

The Ukiah Theatre has recently been modernized. I have not been inside yet but do know that the last remaining component of the original auditorium was removed (the handrail for the raised seating in the back of the auditorium). The City of Ukiah underwent a giant tree planting campaign a few years ago and planted trees in the sidewalk right infront of the vertical sign. There are also powerlines and poles that make it hard to see the marquee unless you are very close to it.

The website for the Ukiah Theatre, which is now operated by Regal Entertainment, is http://www.regmovies.com

Please give me a website where I can read the reviews of current movies at the Ukiah Theatre. I go there weekly and need to read the reviews. Thank you.
