Garberville Theatre

The Garberville Theatre was a conversion of a garage, and opened August 2, 1935. It was remodeled in 1951, reopening January 12 1952. This small but distinctive theater is sandwiched between two retail stores. The theatre has a pink and blue marquee with a “GT” monogram and a vertical blade. It was closed in 2016, unable to fund for purchase of a digial projector.

The Garberville Theatre re-opened on January 12, 1952, following a complete remodeling and redecoration, which was handled by San Francisco theater designer Gale Santocono. The re-opening was noted in the January 26, 1952, issue of Boxoffice Magazine.

The Garberville Theatre was another victim of the cost of converting to digital projection. A 2014 gofundme attempt at funding the conversion raised only $1,061 dollars of the owners' $70,000 goal. The house has apparently been closed for quite some time, but I haven’t been able to find any reports giving the date.

It appears they had an unsuccessful Go Fund Me campaign 2 years ago. Not much else about it on searches.
