I spent many hours watching films here as a kid in the summer time. I loved the lobby and always wished for a full restoration. Now, I am in the business of restoring theaters (evergreene.com) but missed out on this opportunity. I will always have a soft spot in my heart for the Rainbow.

In its later years it was a two-screen operation.

The Rainbow is technically part of the Fox Redlands building.

Photos of the marquee and auditorium of this splendid little Art Moderne theatre can be seen in this Boxoffice article from December 6, 1941. There is also a ground-floor plan of the Grove and its parent theater, the Redlands, which shows the relationship between the two houses.
