In 1982, operator Julio Gonzales received a 5-year sublease from United Artists to relight the venue with a $50,000 makeover. It reopened on November 4, 1982 with “Un Hombre Llamada El Diablo.” It closed permanently May 23, 1986. The building was razed for a medical center in 2014.

Compare design similarities to Tulsa' Delman and Tower theatres, and one can see that it is quite likely that this this theatre came from the drawing board of W. Scott Dunne.
Who the heck edited my intro? If I would’ve known my submission was going to be edited and would end up including questionable punctuation and stylization, I would have reconsidered posting.
Please, Cinema Treasures staff, if you wish to edit my writing, please run it by me first.
