I know both MegoScott and Hardy Girl been there.
The Paramount and the Grand Lake theaters in Oakland, Ca, are awesome, they both have live organs (it's usually played only on weekends)...the Paramount was featured in the movie 'Tucker' with Jeff Bridges...that place even has a bar...yes...a bar, lol.
Paramount theater (symphonies, concerts, ballet, and old movie classics):
Check out both these pictures, they are too big to post (it does not allow for hot linking, but when you get to the page, click on the pictures to blow them up, the first picture is of the sadly neglected Fox theater), the Paramount is spectacular...
The Grand Lake theater is not as spectacular as the Paramount, but it's still a beautiful old school movie theater:
They use the Grand Lake to post a lot of political stuff now, lol:
They sure don't make them like that anymore.
