Contrary to the indicator on the State Theatre/Monterey tour, the Golden State Theatre in Monterey, California is open for business while restoration is ongoing. Please visit us at http://www.goldenstatetheatre.com Thanks!

What has happened to the Regency across Alvarado, which had been operated as a "fourth screen" for the State for many years? Glad to see the Golden State re-emerging! The website indicates there will be a "gift store" eventually. Let us know when that's up and running.

The Regency building (the 1919 Elks Lodge) was purchased by another party. At the moment, it's vacant, although I understand it's going to be used for movies from India. It no longer has any connection with the Golden State.
The gift shop/ticket counter/concession stand should be up and running this Friday, March 11, in time for Harold Lloyd's "Grandma's Boy." If you look at the theatre picture on this site, it will be located in the storefront immediately to the right of the entrance apron. It will be known as "The Golden State Emporium."

I've always loved Monterey/Pacific Grove. If I could afford it I would retire there. I work for Regal in the Northwest and I used to kid my wife that if the State were looking for a GM I was gone. I hope the Golden State store will be able to sell stuff online.

I love it here too, but if I didn't have a great job, I couldn't afford it. As it is, I can only rent, as home prices are ridiculous. But I make up for it by volunteering at an old movie palace.

The gift store is up and running! Check it out on http://www.goldenstatetheatre.com I'm 50 years old today, and having my party at the Golden State tomorrow. The new owner is showing my favorite sci-fi movie, "Forbidden Planet"!
