I’m amazed it lasted until 2003, if you look at the 1980 photo.

If I get some advance notice I can be there when they start the demolition.

The Front Door’s neighboring Atlantic Theater is not long for this world, apparently.

El Seguno in the caption should be El Segundo, as an aka.

That’s probably why it was never added. I guess there were two theaters, although it’s a little hazy. I know that in a full day on the Pier we would always see both movies.

They usually had a double feature. I saw High Plains Drifter, Young Winston, Jonathan Livingston Seagull and Gang that Couldn’t Shoot Straight, among others.

This town was in the news yesterday. The woman who played Thelma Lou on the Andy Griffith show (Barney’s girlfriend) was robbed. She moved to Mount Airy to get away from crime in the city.

I wouldn’t have guessed that this town had any theaters. I’ve stopped here a few times to have lunch when driving up to San Francisco.
