Alhambra's Edwards Atlantic Theater is Toast [UPDATE]

New, 17 comments

ALHAMBRA: The Alhambra Source reports the Edwards Palace has a date with the wrecking ball. The building--"a historic movie theater site" is scheduled to be demolished July 1, replaced by a Los Angeles County building.

Source author Nathan Solis has some memories of the place: "For 72 years Alhambra has had one form of a theater with the Edwards name which resulted in countless memories. I will never forget waiting in line to watch Batman Returns. There's 6-year old me, standing next to my father, both of us covered in Batman stickers that an usher gave us when we got our tickets." UPDATE: Important to know: The original building was torn down. What's coming down is the replacement building. [Alhambra Source]
