Coronado’s Village Theatre
The community of Coronado is bursting with pride with the reopening of the Coronado Village Theatre. After being closed for more than a decade, the 1940’s Coronado Village Theatre reopened its doors in June. The art deco marquee and façade of the Coronado Village Theatre has been refurbished and is once again the focal point on Orange Avenue in Coronado
It seems that taking in a movie at the Coronado Village Theatre is a rite of passage for any local. The single-screen theatre was the place where everyone in town gathered to see the latest films. I remember in years past taking my children to The Coronado Village Theatre. Located in the center of Coronado, it was easy to walk to and didn’t require a drive across the Coronado Bay Bridge. Unfortunately, as the years went on, the movie theatre management didn’t keep up and residents of Coronado began leaving the aging Coronado Village Theatre for the more modern multi-screen theaters across the San Diego Bay. In 2000 the theatre closed after falling into serious disrepair.
Bringing the Coronado Village Theatre back to life was no easy task. Fortunately Coronado City Officials and concerned Coronado residents were keen to save the 64-year old theater. For more than eight years a broad-based group of supporters worked to find a way to reopen the Coronado Village Theatre. In 2008, Coronado’s redevelopment agreed to provide $2.675 million grant to Vintage Theatre to ensure its long-term operation. “We feel the investment Coronado made to revitalize the Village Theatre will be returned to residents and movie patrons for many decades to come,” said Coronado City Manager Blair King in the recent issue of Coronado Currents, The Official publication of the City of Coronado.
