The Stanford Theatre: A Portal to Another Era

by Christina Morgan Cree

Walking through the doors of the Stanford Theatre in Palo Alto, California, is like entering a portal to the splendor of another era. The opulent neoclassical styled movie palace whisks you back to a time before technology, television, and even home radio, to a pre-depression America where entertainment and distraction were sought outside the home. Beautifully designed and decorated with larges lobbies and mezzanines with chairs and couches where friends could sit and talk. Before Hitchcock's Psycho, movie goers would show up to the theatre without much thought to showtimes. It was common to walk into the theatre mid movie.
