One of the best and largest marques anywhere. A handsome post art deco/art moderne masterpiece with a NW Indian theme. Should have been restored and used for concert and stage theatre.

I agree 100% with the comment above about the marque. Interstate 5 was built some years after the theatre, the view of the marque from the Southbound lanes of I-5 was impressive. If you look carefully in this picture, you can see the little “cable car” used to change the marque. The teenage staff would have to load it up with the letters needed, climb in and hoist themselves up the level needed and push or pull it from side to side across the face of the sign while standing inside the car. I am sure that OSHA would not approve of this practice today.
