The Boulevard Theatre opened in 1929. Later known as Teatro, it was a popular downtown movie theater showing Spanish-language films for decades. After it finally closed in 1993, the Teatro became a popular recording studio for everyone from Bob Dylan to U2. After the recording studio closed, the Teatro was briefly home to a church, but currently is vacant.

Does anyone know what the inside of the theater looks like now? Are there still theater seats and a big screen or is it completely gutted out?

Click on the link that I posted on Jun 3, 2008 at 7:35pm. It tells you that “The floor is level with seats taken out”.

The outside of the Teatro Theatre will be restored soon. The neon and lighting on the building will be restored. The building needs an earthquake retrofit so once that is completed it open again for general use.

There are not many features left inside. The seats had been removed and the floor is now level. It has potential for a creative use post production studio,music studio or sound stage. The is a stage inside
and the building is 7500 square feet.

The work will be completed by the end of 2009.
