The Onate Theater is listed in Film Daily Yearbook; editions 1941 and 1943 but without a seating capacity given. This usually means the theatre had recently opened and details had not been passed to the publishers of F.D.Y. (However two years delay seems like a long time!). In the 1950 edition of F.D.Y. the seating capacity is given as 600.

My photograph of the ONATE sign. After reading LM’s comment, I hope they preserved it.

There were several shots of this movie theater in 1971’s “Bunny O'Hare.” There was a mock movie on the marquee so I couldn’t tell if the place was still open.
