This simple 40s-era movie house became noted outside of its immediate neighborhood in its later years for showing classic films. Most people still refer to it fondly by its name during the classic film policy, “Vitaphone Saratoga”.
For a brief time, the same operator expanded the classic film policy to San Jose’s Burbank Theatre, renaming it the Vitaphone Burbank. This venture was shortlived.
The Saratoga itself closed in the mid-80s. Up until the end it preserved its period maroon and mint facade colors, turquoise tilework in the entry, and simple wedge marquee with a calligraphic style “S” in the center.
