Theater Thursday: Portola

This week’s feature in our Theater Thursday series takes us to Portola, California. The images below are from our Eastman Originals Collection. The first image was taken in 1938 while the second image is undated. However, the movies listed on the marquee can help us date the second photograph to 1939.

Did you ever attend a movie at the Portola Theatre? If so, please share your memories with us.
