The Pep Theater opened in the early-1940’s, it is listed in the 1943 edition of Film Daily Yearbook with a seating capacity of 400. Seating is given as 450 in 1950.

By 1952, it had been renamed Alta Theater. It is located on South L Street, between E. Kern Street and E. Ventura Street. In recent years it has been in use as a bowling alley.

I went there to see Happy Feet and the staff was friendly, food was typical, the seating was great and sound and picture compareable to Manchester cinema. (Which I frequent) I would definitely go again. The location is on the end of town which is not exactly prime but for the most part it is by the Police department which makes it safe to me.

I wonder if this theater could have been in the building that is now the Dinuba Lanes Bowling Center, at 250 S. L Street? It occupies three old buildings, but at the rear of the northernmost building is a taller section that could have been a stage house.
