Del Oro Theater Gets Visit from National Historical Group

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.
