I attended this theater when I was in the Navy. I was there in the fall on 1964. The interior was nothing great, but it had a very large wide screen. Great presentations of CinemaScope films.

The theater building is still there as of the end of 2011, but its condition doesn’t appear that great. The map address can be refined to 9th St and Ave I: http://g.co/maps/q48z9

As a ‘Public afairs’ Navy Reservist at T.I. in the late 70’s-80’s I often saw a good flick at the Basilone Theater.

I was proudly associated with the 45th Anniversary program about Treasure Island and made some 8'x10' b&w copies of stage and projection equipment from historic photos. These also included the California Building fire at the 1939 World’s Fair. I was informed that a pipe organ was destroyed inside.
