I saw many films here in the early 80s. I'll never forget Star Trek II. The outer space scenes against the back drop of the clear night sky were amazing: like the boarder between the film and the sky didn't exist. I was so sad when it closed.

A recent site inspection reveals that all that remains are a few ramps. All other structures have been torn down and the site is now the location of a boat dealer and a mini-storage.
