This website lists the theatre at
5677 Stockton Blvd and a recent photo shown there shows a nondescript building standing there, but you can see it’s the Manor Theatre—waiting to be lived in again.

This is from BUSINESS JOURNAL in 1998, but I don’t think anything came of it for this theatre:

Ten years ago, Warren Ilsohn and Jean Mulleian, the owners of the Fruitridge Shopping Center on Stockton Boulevard, were forced to close the aging Manor Theatre.

The theater was built in the 1940s and badly needed renovation. But lenders wouldn’t touch it. “We got numerous excuses,” Ilsohn said. “Some said it was the wrong area. They gave us the runaround.”

Now the Manor Theatre and other properties like it in the Stockton Boulevard Redevelopment Area may get a new lease on life.

Bank of America has launched a two-year pilot program to put its considerable heft behind a plan to build up the neighborhood. The state’s largest bank is committing itself to reaching out to businesses, property owners and residents who need low-interest loans to make improvements and build equity.

Does anyone know if this building still stands today and what business occupies it? I haven’t been to the area in 15 years.

The Manor started showing XXX fare in the early 1970s.

I remember this place. As a kid I remember driving past it often. I always wanted to go in, but of course they weren’t showing Disney films at that point. I love the style of the exterior—very California.

The picture shows that the Manor did operate through most of the 1970s and maybe the beginning of the ‘80s. It was a porno house (XXX). Sad, isn’t it?
