Originally constructed in 1947, the 9,000-square foot art deco style Village Theatre debuted to roaring success with a showing of “Irish Eyes Are Smiling” in Technicolor. For more than 50 years, the theatre was a centerpiece of Coronado, but by 2000, it had fallen into disrepair.
After 10 years and millions of dollars from the city and private investors, Vintage Cinemas opened the etched glass doors once again and invited the community back into the beautifully restored theatre.
An eyesore became eye candy, and a stunning example of the great movie houses of yesteryear, updated for audiences of today.
