News About This Theater
This was the first indoor motion picture theater opened in my Northeast Fresno neighborhood. Its premier attraction on October 13, 1965 was the undistinguished “The Man From Button Willow” starring Dale Robertson. It went on to become a wonderful first-run house.
“Thoroughly Modern Millie” and “The Sound of Music” both had their Fresno premieres at the Squire Theatre. I remember Blake Edwards “The Great Race”, “Oliver!”, and other first-rate motion pictures there, too. This 1960’s Moderne-style theater featured Continental seating, which meant no center aisles.
The last motion picture that I remember seeing at the Country Squire Theater was the Allan Carr 1970’s musical “Can’t Stop The Music”. I was living in Hollywood at the time and in Fresno visiting my parents.
