A nickelodeon, this long and narrow wood-frame building sat at the corner of Mission Street and Los Olivos Avenue. It’s ticket lobby, open to the street, was entered through a triple-scalloped archway, above which were painted the words, “Grand View Motion Picture Theatre.” Over this signage, there was ornamental millwork, consisting of a cornice with a little onion-domed decorative turret in its center.
Today the building houses a grocery. The arched entry is long gone, but the cornice atop the facade-much simplified, and without the turret-still survives. Examination of the building reveals that its hilltop location was ideal for a theatre site. It must have been easy to conform the rake of the seating to the slope of the hill.
