The Diamond opened as the Glenodeon in 1913. It was a small, typical neighborhood nickelodeon that served San Francisco’s Glen Park neighborhood. It was renamed the Diamond in 1917 and closed around 1929 or 1930, never adapting to the advent of sound.
Unlike other similar ventures elsewhere in the city, it was never replaced a larger theater, and is completely forgotten today, except for a single faded photo that survives in the San Francisco Public Library History Room showing a small but gleeful audience gathered together underneath its humble arched facade one bright day back in 1926, the film of the moment being the equally forgotten “Quincy Adams Sawyer”.
