Located in the West View section of Pittsburg. The Grand Theatre was opened in 1927 (not to be confused with the Grand Theatre, 4909 2nd Avenue). It was equipped with a Moller theatre organ Opus 3647.

By 1941, it had been renamed Gerard Theatre and was operated by the Alpine Theaters Circuit.

I can’t tell you how many times as a kid I spent a wonderful Saturday or Sunday afternoon here. Now, it was a small theater and the strangest thing was its inability to play a wide screen movie in its original aspect ratio. There was a stage and a screen that had no masking capability, so every movie image completely filled the screen. But the sides of a widescreen film fell off to the sides onto a dull set of curtains that stretched from the front of the stage to the back beside the screen.
