Two buses will pull up Thursday (June 28) in front of the Del Oro Theater in downtown Grass Valley to bring members of a national historical society to see the movie palace that opened in the 1940s in Nevada County. Ross Fosbrink is executive director of the Theater Historical Society of America. He says members of the Illinois-based group members are cinema sweethearts.
Interested residents can join the tour of the Del Oro, scheduled to start at 11 a.m. Thursday (June 28).
Azriel LaMarca, special events manager for Sierra Cinemas said that, unlike many cities, Grass Valley held on to its movie palace.
The national theater group will also visit Sacramento and other cities in California.
