The State Theatre in Red Bluff is open for business along the main drag. The theatre itself still looks to be in good shape.

The Cascade Theatre is a throwback to the era when single screen grand movie houses were all the rage. Looks like this one is all boarded up these days.

These circa 70's Cinedome Theaters run by (Century Theatres) are rumored to be poised for the wrecking ball. They're up in the Bay Area in the city of Fremont.

Here's an interior shot of the top of one of the domes. The snack bar also has some disco era decor that fits the theme of the movie being played there.

The grand opening of the Grand Lake Theatre was March 6, 1926. It opened as a vaudeville show and silent movie house. You can still hear the sounds of the Mighty Wurlitzer on Friday and Saturday nights! Expanded in 1981 and 1985, converting balcony seating and storefronts along Grand Avenue into multi-screen auditoriums.

Many thanks to Adriene Biondo for photos and text.
