Re: “Havens for Cinema Junkies: The Legacy of East Bay Movie Houses

What a great walk down memory lane - I spent so many hours at the UC Theatre growing up in the 70s and 80s that I've lost count. The Rialto was a nightmare - "sound bleed" is a kind description of the crimes committed there; buy your ticket for one film, enjoy overlapping soundtracks for 3 movies! The Northside was a great little theater, with respectful audiences and quirky films (anyone remember "Android" or "Nobody's Fool"?). The Act One and Two, The Oaks on Solano, and The Berkeley on Shattuck (where I worked for a summer in 1985, Joe Dante's "Explorers" playing to empty seats) were also terrific, now long-gone memories.
