The Decoto is listed as having 296 seats, in the 1949 Film Daily Yearbook. It has not been demolished. I have just updated the Street View to show the building. The only change it has had since I photographed it in the early 1990s is a new coat of paint, and the augmentation of the original, plain marquee structure with the low gabled roof-awning shown, and the removal of the perpendicular readerboard frame which was above it.

This theatre was still standing, and in use as a church, in the early 1990s when I took a couple of exterior photos of it. I have not driven past the location since then, so I do not know for certain if it has been demolished.

I found a small amount of information from a 1995 meeting minutes of the Union City Historical Society. Theater was on 2nd Street between E & F Streets & was “owned by Bautista”.
