Here is one of my latest productions that I am glad to show from Oakland, California. It is of the Grand Lake Theatre. The Grand Lake Theatre is a haven for Bay Area photographers/movie goers. With its beautiful exterior, especially lit up at night, it’s easy to see why its been crowned as the top Bay Area movie venue 3 years running. Aside from its stunning exterior, the interiors aesthetic is breathtaking as well.
A little background on the history of the Theatre. The Grand Lake opened in 1926 by the Reid Brothers for West Coast Theaters Inc. A serious of expansions have happened over the years to increase size and update its rustic appearance. Tuesday is the day to enjoy a show here as it offers a $5 all day admission price. On other days you’re cost of admission is $11 and $6 matinees.
Have you been to the Grand Lake Theatre recently? What is your favorite bar and or restaurant in close proximity that I haven’t mentioned here on my blog? For those who are looking for some of the best places to spend your hard earned dollars in The Town, look at some of my old posts where I lay it all out for you.
I have always wanted to get on this rooftop for a photoshoot but for now this drone shoot will have to suffice. As a fanatic of drones and this area, is there a particular spot in the area you wish to see highlighted on one my posts? If so, comment below and or send me an email so i can take dreams to realities.
I am a movie fanatic but I really don’t get inside to see many. However, this July 13th don’t miss out on the release of Boots Riley, Sorry to Bother You. I mention this because the movie was filmed in Oakland and has had a few pre release view parties to get people buzzing about this hometown made flick. See you there.
