Fourth photograph down. It's not the Seattle, Westwood, Sacramento or Kansas City Crests.

I haven't seen the theater (and don't even know if it's still standing), but the Long Beach Crest Theatre seems like a likely possibility.

I was informed that the film took place in Southern California, so this might be right. Let me know if you find out more!

I doubt it's the Long Beach Crest:

has the script on the word "Crest" as completely different from the one in the aforementioned film.

Doesn't look like the San Bernardino Crest either. Sorry.

Having not seen a better picture of the front of the theatre. The Crest Theatre in Westwood, California , had a marquee like that. This is before the Disney/Pacific remodel and before the remodel for the Metro Theatre in the mid 80's. That marquee is what Century Theatres of California / Statewide Theatres of California used in the remodels of the 60's on their theatres. Before those later remodels the Crest Theatre had a small Box Office located in the center under the marquee.

Last night, I looked at some early 70's shots of the Crest Theatre, Westwood. It not that theatre either. The area under the marquee in the movie shot has more space, than the Crest, Westwood has.

Whichever Crest it turns out to be, the film takes places mostly inside the theatre - a time-capsule of sorts...
