    This is a terrific set of images. It should be pointed out that a small portion of the garden which fronted the Alhambra Theatre still exists, with a tiled fountain and inscribed quotes from the Rubbiyat of Omar Khayyam on the wall behind it. A Safeway stands on the site of the theatre itself. As originally built, this Safeway was one of the worst examples of 1970s weathered wood and rusty nail Mineshaft Modern architecture ever used for a grocery store. Thankfully, the building has been remodeled, in an understated Spanish style somewhat evocative of the theatre’s facade.
