This theater was owned by the same family that ran the Berlin Cine 1 & 2. The Vernon Cine 1 & 2 was next to a mini golf course and arcade. I would always make a day of it as a child by going to play mini golf and video games, shopping at the baseball card store across the street, and catching a movie.

same here…mini golf, video games, then a movie. Or the movie then the games and golf. Too bad they closed, lots of movie memories here.

Went by this “place” on Tuesday on a bicycle trip. The place is green grass to the left of the golf place. The Quality Inn is behind the former theatre.

I don’t know if that’s the original marquee on the corner, though. It looks either refurbished or new and it’s huge. There’s a doctors park across the street on its side and the messages are all for businesses, if i recall correctly.
