The Park Theater, which opened June 6, 1904, was the first motion-picture theater in Alameda. Enlarged on June 27, 1912, it closed March 25, 1919, eleven months and ten days after the Strand Theater (q.v.) opened next door.

The Park was built as an annex to 1336 Park Street and is today a restaurant. It was also the first vaudeville theater in Alameda (but was not next door to the Strand, they were actually several doors apart).

Corrections to my earlier post—-the Park’s address was 1338 Park Street, and it and the Strand were not only several doors apart, but there were two buildings (plus [at least today] a walkway[!]) between them.
