Long Description:
Opened in 1940, the Art Moderne Berkley could seat 851 and screened first run features. Its sleek and curving facade featured a tall vertical marquee with the theater's name on each side.

By the late 70s, the Berkley had switched over to second-run fare. In the early 90s, the theater was showing a mixture of first and second-run films.

Unfortunately, this beautiful neighborhood movie house has since closed. From what we were able to see, it's now a Rite-Aid drug store (BUMMER).

The good news is, the town forced them to keep the sign operational.
