Santa Cruz in Santa Cruz County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Theatre Del Mar
When a Chamber of Commerce bid failed to purchase the theatre, United Artists partitioned it into a four-plex in 1978. 1999 plans to convert it into shops and offices were stopped when a coalition was formed to save the theatre in 2001. The city redevelopment agency purchased the theatre, installed an elevator, and made the facility thoroughly accessible for the disabled. Jesse Nickell of Barry Swenson Builder and George Ow Jr. renovated the structure and main auditorium; and the Nickelodeon’s Jim Schwenterley and Chuck Volwiler outfitted it for movies.
