Tower Theater

~
Who could forget the fabulous Crest or the Tower Theater? Fresno’s drive-ins were the most popular with teens, among them the Moon-Glow and the Sunset. The world’s largest outdoor screen was housed at the Sunnyside Drive-in. Did you hide in the trunk to save 50 cents or possibly steam up the car’s windows? Share your old Fresno theater memories here.

This photo was taken in 1987 when the Theater had just completed a restoration. They had a special event to honor the original architect: S CHARLES LEE who is 89 years old in this picture. The Tower Theater's owner, Dotty Abbate, presented Mr. Lee with a medallion which commemorated his contributions to art deco design.

From the "I wish I had thought of that" file, we see this early promo of the Tower Theater. Here, we are informed of the birth of Patricia Carol and she weighed 7 pounds, 1 ounce. She stared in the Premiere Showing of "A Daughter". Kinda cute, for 1946!
