I was born and raised in Fremont, always had to go to the movies up town as I lived north about four blocks on division st. my friend Sherwood worked there and we use to go up in the projection room and watch movies and eat real popcorn and yes the popcorn was cheaper then the movie back then!! The older lady that worked there always was nice to me. Had some great memories there. even my mother once took me to see James Bond,you only live twice!! Her favorite movie was Doctor Zhivago and I remember it was a warm summer nite we walked home from the OZ. Fremont was great for walking as with all the sidewalks you could just about go anywhere in town just by walking or riding bikes yes,you could ride bikes on the sidewalks!!Helped my father Fremont Gravel and Construction CO pour a lot of those sidewalk,the money I made I used to go to the OZ and buy comic books at the old newsstand. DTA.

I lived in Fremont until about 10 years ago and I can tell you that the theater in downtown Fremont was called the "Oz" by the locals. It was closed in the late 1980s. The city literally dozed it and made at least partially into a walkway that leads to the parking in the rear of the downtown buildings.
