to “sreder”, you are thinking of the Rafael theater up the street – The El Camino building (still in exsistance) housed JCPenneys and now has Mechanics Bank on the first level – backside has been gutted on the ground floor for parking and there are offices and living quarters on the upper level

This building now houses the California Film Institute which owns the Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center down the street and runs the Mill Valley Film Festival, now in it’s 30th year. The theater may be gone, but the spirit is still there.

I crawled up in 2000 right before they gutted it and got a nice 5 minute video. Some nice elements left.
