The address of this was 448 West Baseline. As of early 1980, The Meralta, Criterion, Norwalk Twin and Holiday Theatres became 49¢ theatres; by mid-March of that year, the Uptown in Pasadena and Studio Theatre did, too.

I had to re-map this as the map link at the top puts you in Glendora. W. Baseline picks up in San Bernardino just east of the 215.

The Studio was opened by Cabart Theatres in 1936. The construction announcement appeared in Southwest Builder & Contractor of November 22, 1935. The installation of sound equipment at the Studio was mentioned in Motion Picture Herald of March 7, 1936.

Nice name and Marquee.

Theatre was demolished, someone said back in the Fall of 2006.
Yahoo Map and Bing still show the theatre standing, but Google maps shows the most current shot of an empty lot where the theatre once stood. With a For Sale sign on it.

Before demo I aquired the STUDIO marquee sign and contacts.

I uploaded what might possibly be the Studio vertical sign, but with the colors reversed from the original. The shape is the same. Maybe doubleAA above can confirm if it was changed in the `60s. If not, I will continue to search for which Studio Theatre it may be.
