It'smy understandingthat Norman Petty owned this at one time. Didn’t the auditorium ceiling have a star covered sky?

Does anyone remember an early 1950’s restaurant called The Aristocrat? My parents, Stan and Jo Curkee, ran it. Some women’s clubs held luncheons there. I’d really apreciate any photos of it. , rbrtptrck

The Mesa Theatre suffered a major fire and was rebuilt in 1948. Apparently the walls survived the disaster. Reconstruction was about to begin, according to Boxoffice of March 6, 1948. Operator E. R. Hardwick said that everything in the theater would be new, including the four (segregated) rest rooms. The stadium-style auditorium was to seat 768. The architect for the project was Jack Corgan.

There is some interest in turning the theater into a community center:
