Sad to say that the Clova closed this evening, with a presentation of Dead Reckoning (with Humphrey Bogart) – which is also the very first movie ever shown here in 1947.

As of 2015, it’s being used as a church by the Crossridge Church. It’s also been renovated back to its pre-1980s appearance (to a point) and is now referred to as the Crossridge Church at the Clova.
