This beautiful small theater in Monterey, California was owned by a great couple of guys, one of whom danced with Ann Margaret (as the legend went), thus the very large rendering of her on the side of the theater. It had a certain hip vibe to the overall design that was perfect for the area’s bohemian subculture, but showed near-first-run features for the general population too. I knew one of the guys that owned it, Alan, but cannot recall the partner’s name - the dancer mentioned.
They also had another even more boho cinematic venture on Cannery Row - the Pillow Theater - that was just that: pillows that one would plop down onto on the floor and get cozy. It went the way of the great Cannery Row fire back in the late ‘70s (I think that’s right).
Dragged many friends there to see Warhol’s “Bad” when it played there around 1976.
