The quonset hut Lakeside Theatre was about midway between today’s Applebee’s Restaurant and the Park Avenue stoplight in South Lake Tahoe.
Highway 50 then was only a narrow two-lane mountain road, thus more frontage area as seen in these pictures.
This building was demolished by 1963 and a beautiful new Lakeside Theatre (not quonset) opened near the Y in November 1963.
It was razed in about 2000 and the site now is CVS next to McDonald’s.
