Photos of the Fremont

The Fremont Theater in San Luis Obispo, California, has been around for more than 70 years.  According to Cinema Treasures, the Fremont Theater was designed by Simeon Charles Lee (also known as S. Charles Lee).  It was built in 1940.

The Los Angeles Times posted an obituary for S. Charles Lee when he died in 1990.  In it, he is described as “the most prolific and prominent architect of movie theaters of the Art Deco period”.  He designed more than 4,000 theaters around the world.

I posted some artsy photos I took of the Fremont Theater on my Instagram and decided to share them here.


The photos you see in this blog were taken in July of 2016.
