Here’s a cool newspaper clipping showing all the movies playing in the general area back in 1975.

The Mission Theatre in Fallbrook, California, was listed in the “New Theaters” column of the January 14, 1937, issue of The Film Daily. It was also mentioned in the April 4, 1937, issue of Motion Picture Herald, which said that W. J. Eagleston had purchased the lease and furnishings of the Mission Theatre from the Fallbrook Theatre Corporation.
