Cinemas include The Paramount and the Grand Lake Theatre in Oakland, the Orinda Theatre in Orinda, the Crest Westwood in Los Angeles, and the Alameda in San Francisco, the latter of which is described thusly:

Built in 1932 in Alameda, California, it was the last grand movie palace built in the San Francisco Bay Area. It closed in the 1980s as a triplex theatre and was later used as a gymnastics studio. A restoration and expansion project was completed in 2008, making the historic theater the primary anchor of an eight-screen multiplex.
