Investigating Glendale's Historic Theatres

I've had a page on the Alex Theatre up for ages but hadn't had time until now to check out other historic theatres in Glendale.

You'll now find a new page on Bard's Glen Theatre, which is now a banquet hall after a stint as a bowling alley.

Another building that still exists is what used to be the Roxy. It's now a music venue known as Beyond the Star's Palace. The photo here is a 1991 view of the Roxy by noted filmmaker Gary Graver.

Another new listing is for Glendale's California Theatre. The building is long gone but we're fortunate that the California State Library has a few nice photos, including interior views. You'll find links to them as well as a few other goodies.

Again with the now vanished Capitol Theatre, the best photos remaining come from the California State Library. Check them out.

That's all for now. I'll be doing more Glendale explorations later. Do you have any old photos you'd care to share of Glendale theatres?
