About

This theater opened for vaudeville and silent movies in 1927. In the early 50s, Steven Spielberg, who lived nearby, saw DeMille's Greatest Show on Earth here. Actor Michael Landon was an usher here as a boy in the 60s. Dustin Hoffman was here to test-run Kramer vs. Kramer. It is in danger of being razed but there is a strong preservation effort going on. It is a beautiful example of Streamline Moderne design.
