The El Cerrito Historical Society and Friends of the Cerrito Theater are presenting a program about Fabulous Historic Movie Theaters of the East Bay. See below for details.
Let’s celebrate the East Bay’s movie-going past – and its present. Learn about the grand movie palaces that once dotted the landscape, and those that still remain. Mourn the loss of many neighborhood theatres, while touring one that was resurrected in 2006 after 40 years in the dark.
The program features Jennifer Dowling Posedel, author of “Theatres of Oakland,” and Gary Lee Parks, author of “Theatres of San Jose” and co-author of “Theatres of the San Francisco Peninsula.” It will be followed by a tour of the 75-year-old Cerrito Theater, with its original Heinsbergen murals, etched glass and more.
Saturday, June 15, 2013, 10 a.m. to Noon, Free.
Rialto Cinemas Cerrito, 10070 San Pablo Avenue, El Cerrito.
