The California Theatre in Berkeley, California hasn't shown movies since March 2020, but now the theater appears to be closed for good.

Landmark Theatres has operated the three-screen movie theater since 1994, but an article published recently by The Daily Californian says that the building's landlord decided not to renew Landmark's lease:

High school student Ryland Walker Knight sat on the edge of his seat, eyes peeled open at the movie screen ahead. Struck by the beauty of the production, he dragged his friend to Berkeley’s California Theatre for its second screening of “Inland Empire” in two days.

Today, filmmaker Knight is both shocked and saddened to hear Landmark’s California Theatre will permanently close due to the landlord’s decision to withhold the renewal of its rental contract at the property located on Shattuck Avenue and Oxford.

Moviegoers in the area will need to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the Landmark Shattuck Cinemas, the UA Berkeley 7, and the Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley.
