The Towne Theater was located at 6918 Eastern Ave Bell Gardens and was just three blocks from the house where I grew up. My sister took me there to see my first movie in April 1952. The Towne was somewhat of a run down theater. It was not a first run movie house. It had to wait until first Huntington Park and then Bell were done with there run of a movie before coming to Bell Gardens.
The Towne closed in l956 or 1957. The last movie to play there was “Jailhouse Rock”. The building that housed the theater was just demolished in 2002 to make way for a Hollywood Video.
The Towne holds special memories for me because it was where I saw “High Noon”. How I wish I could see a picture of it. I belive it was built around the late 30s or early 40s.
