Early Long Beach Theatres
Brooklyn based theatre historian Cezar Del Valle has steered us to a whole set of pages on the Cal State Long Beach website about early film production and theatres in Long Beach. There's lots to look through including rare photos from the Joseph Musil collection. This map by Ronald W. Mahan identifies some early locations. Also on the same CSULB Early Long Beach Theatres page is a list of addresses and links to additional pages with photos.
Our own survey of Long Beach Theatres continues to grow -- some new data points (and many photos) from the CSULB work will get added in over the next few weeks.
