Like its Market Street neighbors the Palace and the Family aka Apollo, the News played out its last years as an all-night grind house showing B movies and eventually adult features. It had a very narrow frontage on Market Street, with the name “NEWS” spelled out vertically in tile above the entrance. Demolished along with the Palace and several other structures to make way for the 1234 Market office building.
