This theater had two screens back in the 70s and was called the St. Johns “Rocking Chair” Theater because it had seats that would indeed rock a bit. Later they chopped the theaters up for more screens. The theater site itself had a very suburban feeling, with a big parking lot in front. It was demolished at some point and the site is now a strip mall.

As kids in the late 60s and early 70s we would cajole one of the neighborhood parents to bring us here from Orange Park on Saturday mornings to watch cartoons and then a Disney-esque feature. There was a weekly coupon in the Times-Union (featuring a smiling Bugs Bunny on it) that would get you in for, I think, 25 cents.

We loved the York in the late 80s, partly because you could smoke in the balcony. If I remember correctly, they had a dual effort with the Red Vic in the Haight. The schedule of films (which usually only ran for a day or two) was printed in a sort of poster format covering several months. We were always looking to see what was coming up at the Red Vic and the York.
