Coronado’s Village Theatre Renovation

Coronado's Village Theatre

When we visit Coronado it’s like being dropped into a small town. You can ride your bike anywhere, and the island has everything a visitor could need. And now, it will have even more. Re-opening March 2011 is the Village Theatre located on Orange Avenue. Closed for a decade, the theatre will finally receive its much needed renovation. Opened originally in 1947, the theatre will be transformed into a three screen cinema. The original illuminated “Village” sign will remain intact and the theatre’s interior will feature an Art Deco theme. This small intimate theatre is another reminder of simple times and quaint places that Coronado is so well known for.

Tomorrow, September 29th, there will be a big groundbreaking ceremony where visitors can see for the first time the Interior Design Concepts for the Village Theatres. Freshly popped popcorn and soft drinks will be served from 12-6 p.m. Hope to see you there!

About Suzzanne

I love to buy books, but seldom actually finish one. I like african violets, my iPhone, and everything that smells like lavender.  I am seriously adverse to the cold and am known to bring a sweatshirt to the beach in the summer.  I have two kids – a boy whose 10 and a girl 12.

What would you do on your ideal San Diego Day?

It would start by having breakfast somewhere near the ocean – either Pannikin in Encinitas or Beach Grass Café in Solana Beach.  Then we would head to the beach hang out for a few hours, head home and then catch a concert in the park in Balboa Park.

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

We love riding our bikes around town.  There are great places to ride in San Diego that kids can handle – Coronado Island, Point Loma or the boardwalk in Pacific Beach are just a few.

Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?

Depends on the day, a good burger and craft brew can really hit the spot, but I would probably end up ordering linguine and white wine.

  1. Looks like you have a lovely town there and I’m hoping to visit real soon. Hang on to every old building you can because without history your just another somebody, I live 20 yards from Hadrian’s Wall and most people take it for granted or are oblivious to why it’s there so learn, love and cherish. I hope to see everyone in ca real soon. Cheers everyone.
