The Vista was built in the early 1940’s and torn down in 1970 for the Valley National Bank Tower that took up the entire city block. The Vista Theater was a small theater sandwiched between an alley and small jewelry store. The only thing fancy about it was the marquee that was topped by scrolling polychrome neon lights.
Movies were shared with the Fox Theater on Washington Street. The films were run back and forth between the two theaters and all the employees wore the same uniforms. One of the last movies shown at the Vista Theater was “I Am Curious Yellow”, which pretty well sums up the end of the entire Phoenix downtown area.
