That corner is unrecognizable, both parking lots now. I hate that.

The Broadway Theater on 8th and Broadway downtown began showing Asian flicks around the same time as the State Theater on El Cajon Boulevard, in October 1980. From 1976 thru 1980, the Broadway had been showing Spanish films (and American movies dubbed or subtitled in Spanish), but the Broadway theater owner Jacqueline Littlefied – who also owned the Spreckels Theaters further down Broadway – terminated the Spanish operators' lease (alleging poor building upkeep) and gave operation of the Broadway to the same Asian owner who took over the State Theater, Thoat Tang Minh.
