The Yost is the subject of a segment of tonight’s Ghost Adventures on the Travel Channel. Major haunting.

As a former US Navy Color Guard member, it is always nice to see the American flag on show (see the opening photo) but your theater display needs to be rearranged in the correct manner, as prescribed by the US Government.

1, The US flag should always be positioned on the far left of a stage (especially when other flags are displayed) with the field of “stars” positioned in the upper left portion of the flag. #2, This is then followed by State, County, City and organization in that order to the right. #3, No other flag, including those of foreign countries are to be positioned any higher or ahead of the US flag.

This common problem is so often created by people who mean well but have never been properly informed. FYI, any American veterans facility or flag shop will gladly supply you with an official printout with pictures.

While semi open for a few years now, the Yost is celebrating it’s official reopening this weekend, after a $2.7 mil remodel/upgrade. The venue is now focused on live concerts and use as a club, with a full bar and restaurant in place.

I try to stay out of Orange County. Too many Republicans.

So the Yost has been open since 2007? Why are we always the last to know these things.

Back in April of 2008 Barrio Night was held at the Yost Theater according to this link. Is the Yost open on a regular basis?

The Yost is about to be reopened. A group of students are making a documentary. Does anyone have information that might be helpful.

Might the theatre referred to at 3rd and Bush in Lost Memory’s entry be the Bush Theatre?

I found another page with the same photo. This one gives a date of 2002, so the church might not be located here today. 2002 photo.

Here is a photo of the Yost Theater building which appears to be used as a church.

The Yost Theatre is presently unoccupied.
I feel that the Mexican/Spanish films screened at the local Teatro on 4th Street should move into the Yost.
This would also be an excellent site for various film festivals.

Is this the same family as Frank Olivos, David Olivos Sr., David John Olivos Jr., and David Olivos III from the same area?

Chuck1231, my post from Feb. 27th 2003 got mis-directed from another theatre posting. The Arlington Theatre in my post was located in Los Angeles. That post was a site error.

For anyone in the Los Angeles area, it is possible that KTLA will be showing footage of the Yost Theatre on Friday, May 5. The morning news crew will be down there for Cinquo de Mayo and the previews show shots of the Yost with Spanish-language verbiage on the marquee.
