Searchlights swept the sky on the opening night of the plush El Rey
Theatre – Walnut Creek’s second movie house. The El Rey served the community
for nearly 50 years, showing popular movies like Shirley Temple’s "Wee
Willie Winkie" and the 1970s classic, "Rocky Horror Picture
Show.” An office building stands today
at the site.
