Restoring Our Town Gem
The Los Gatos Theater has been a fixture in our town since 1915, the dawn of the age of motion picture exhibition. Opening as the Strand Theater, it was remodeled after a 1929 fire. The remodel included a new Art Deco look, complete with marquee and murals. It became the Los Gatos Theater in the 1940s, and then in the late 80s the original “single” was turned into a “twin” with a modest interior renovation, at which time Camera Cinemas was brought in to operate the facility. Our vision for the theater is to renovate and reinvigorate this tired gem. When it reopens in the spring of 2014, the theater will feature a “new-old” design reminiscent of the original theater’s Art Deco trappings combined with modern conveniences and state-of-the art digital facilities.
