| Street View

The Yolanda Theatre was open in the late-1930’s with seating listed at 395. It continued operations through the mid-1950’s. I found two closing dates, one in 1955 and one in 1956.

The theatre was located on the corner with the address listed on E. Main Street, although the front of the building faced Commercial Street.

Since closing the theatre has been converted to a Golden Chick Restaurant.
Any further information or corrections to this theatre would be appreciated.

Main Street & Commercial Street

The address of 137 E. Main Street on the Map puts it down the hill from the theater. The new address will map properly.

Need photos.

The Yolanda Theater was located on Main street, in front of the Riskinds store, next to the Queen Cafe. It showed mostly spanish movies. My parents tell me that during the depression, kids could get in for a safety pin or some small article. When I was growing up in the 50’s it cost .15 cents. Unlike the Aztec which cost .25 cents.

The theater in question was named after Sam Swartz wife who was Yolanda Swartz. Also owners of the famous and beautiful Aztec Theater.
