3 Big features. Open All Night; continuous from 9:45 AM! In the fabulous 1950’s & ‘60’s, The Casino and it’s neighbors, The Aztec, and The Savoy ; all at 5th & G streets, would have this policy! And for a pre-teen young boy, crazy about the movies as well as the CLASSIC theatres that showed them; For THIS young lad, it WAS FAR BETTER THAN THE NEWLY-OPENED DISNEYLAND!!…plus they changed features TWICE A WEEK ! I really thought they would always be there for me! I also LOVED the Historical neighborhood that they were in…and now they show film no more, but instead make up the hub of San Diego’s GASLAMP section.I’m so happy that someone saved the marquee!!

I’ve been in this store. I never connected it with being a theater, despite the marquee. Live and learn.

The San Diego Reader has compiled all its articles about former Casiono operators Walnut Properties onto one webpage, along with around 100 graphics and photos that never appeared in ANY of the published versions. Also included is a Pussycat Theatre mini-history, updates on various Walnut-related lawsuits, etc, as well as a bunch of vintage Casino newspaper ads.
