The Crest Theatre and restoring the marquee

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?

The Crest Theatre and restoring the marquee

Postby hotelfresno » Fri Mar 25, 2016 9:32 am

I am currently working with the owners of The Crest Theatre on their social media/marketing and they are trying to raise funds to restore the marquee, as well as the interior/exterior of the building. They will be having benefit concerts to raise the money. What are some events that would bring you back to The Crest Theatre? What are some of your memories there? If anyone has any personal photos that you would be willing to share, we would appreciate it so much! Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thank you :)

The last movie I saw at The Crest Theater was The Wiz with Michael Jackson and Diana Ross.

I use to go there all the time when I was a little girl. I remember once I lost my red scarf and the next time I went, I saw it lying on the back counter. It was my red scarf! But, I was too young to understand that I only had to open up my mouth and tell someone that the red scarf was mine. I just walked away after I got my popcorn and soda.

Another time, I saw "Tales From The Crypt" and it scared me so much that I had to leave the theater. I stood in the hall, near the door and I would peak in to see what was going on. It was the story of the 3 wishes that made me leave.

Memories! I miss Crest. I wanna go back.
