I grew up in Riverside, 1952 to 1964 when I left for college. I went most often to the Fox and the Golden State but I did see several films at the DeAnza. I remember “The Ten Commandments” with Charlton Heston most of all. Seeing the photographs of the DeAnza remind me of how dramatic a building it was. Does anyone else remember the DeAnza from the 50s?

The De Anza was a great theater, not as great as the Fox Riverside,
but it had a big screen and good projection.

I remember seeing “The FBI Story” “Teacher’s Pet” and I think
“Spirit of St. Louis”

I was there for the last show in 1981. The movie was “Prince of the City”. The manager gave me the one sheet as a souvenir.

The De Anza Theatre opened June 6, 1939, according to the June 10 issue of Boxoffice. The first feature was “Young Mr. Lincoln.”

I saw Fast Times at Ridgemont High here. I heard that Sex Pistols played here?
