Link Notes

This theater, built in 1912, is probably best-known by its original name, Pantages, though it had numerous name changes throughout its life. Those name changes included Lurie (1923), Hippodrome (1926), Premier (1932), Roosevelt (1934), and finally the Downtown (1939 until its closure about 1960). The building was absorbed into an expansion by the adjacent Oakland Tribune; looking up from across 12th Street, one can still see the very top and stage-fly tower of what was the auditorium of the former Pantages Theater."

A later version of this record called the theatre the "Downtown Theatre." (See CInema, "Downtown Theatre 416 12th Street, Oakland, CA 94612," accessed 03/17/2022.)
