Super-Mega-Monster-Plex That Everyone Hates Can't Even Get Sign on Right Side of Street


I've found another problem with Alameda's Super-Mega-Monster-Plex That Everyone Hates.

I happen to live on Central avenue, near Versayalls. A few evening ago, I was on my way to my car to drive over to Starbucks, when I noticed that the horrendous "ALAMEDA" neon sign had been lit up. That in itself is worth complaining about, because how dare they use the name of OUR town to name THEIR theater? But what shocked me was that the big developers from out of town had put up the sign on the WRONG SIDE OF THE STREET. Yes, the neon erection is on the SOUTH side of the street, not the north side where the Super-Mega-Monster-Plex is.

I had to take a picture of this before they realize their mistake and move it back to the correct side of the street. Please forgive the photographer's shaky hand, but I think you can see perfectly here that the sign (the pink thing) is too far to the left.

If you don't believe this, try it for yourselves! Take a little trip past my house toward Park street and you will see that the Super-Mega-Monster-Plex has provided us with yet another reason for everybody to hate it!

Warm Regards,

Pamela Mirabelle

"Everyone?" That's simply a gross hyperbole for what is more realistically about 15-20% of the citizens of Alameda.

Hell, the writer can't even spell the street she lives near, let alone get her facts straight.

When the Timothy Pfluger-designed theater opened in the 30s, it was named the "Alameda Theater."

It's not THEIR theater, it's everyone's and has been since it opened over half a century ago.
