This was a stand alone, single screen theatre that opened on June 1, 1965, in the Oak Knolls shopping center located in Orcutt. It ran first run features initially, and then as the years progressed it was sold to the Pussycat Theatre chain.
I spoke to a former manager, and he said that there were people picketing the theatre, and one of the local clergyman showed up to talk the owner in to showing G-rated films. It didn’t go to well, as the owner kicked the man all the way down the stairs! True Story! It was closed sometime around 1979 or 1980.
It is currently an Ace Hardware store. When you enter the store, to the right are the stairs to the projection booth area. It still has a feel of an abandoned movie theatre.
