Hi Folks:

Here's a question for Carl Martin or Eric Hooper. Does the Toccinni (spelling?) family of Santa Rosa still operate these two theatres? Just curious.

Thanks,
Mike

I do believe that Dan Tocchini (dba North American Cinemas) does still run the Rheem. Can't say I know anything about the Elmwood.

I`d sure like to know more history on the Elmwood. I`m 83 years old and the theatre was there before I was in my teens; indeed it was old then. It was called the Strand. A dump when I was a kid. I think the Berkeley Theatere was built some time around the World War One but the Strand could have been older.
The Tocchini`s have been around forever, starting in Sebastopol, if there`s a Dan Tocchini now he must be Dan the tenth.

my man at the elmwood thinks that the tocchinis (well, some italian family anyways) do still own the elmwood and rheem, possibly more.
