Trade journal Moving Picture World ran this item about Turner & Dahnken’s Theatre De Luxe in its issue of November 9, 1913.

This theatre was indeed called the California after it was called the DeLuxe. However, as soon as the “new” California was built in 1927 (the one that is now restored and is featured in the Shomler photos mentioned in the above comment), this theatre became the Mission, and remained so until its 1953 closure and subsequent demolition.

It turns out to be the CALIFORNIA Theatre. See www.shomler.com for photos.

Does anyone know where this theater was in San Jose? It doesn’t look like the Fox Mission or the Fox Padre. Thanks.

The Camera 12, (former United Artists Pavilion) which occupies part of the footprint of the vanished Fox Mission, is now open.

Update on the “astonishingly stark” multiplex erected on the site of the Fox Mission: Locally owned and operated Camera Cinemas is going to be reopening it very soon. I’m hoping that their budget includes some nice eye-catching details which will relieve the poor building’s “gentrified cellblock-meets-the Great Glass Elevator” appearance.
