El Cerrito CA — Jon Hammond enjoyed the blockbuster hit movie "It’s Complicated" starring Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin with his Mom and Girlfriend Jennifer at the newly refurbished Rialto Cinemas Cerrito Theater at 10070 San Pablo Avenue in El Cerrito last night.
Charles gave Jon a rundown on the complicated techniques he uses to do specialized archival screening implementing some of the latest state of art equipment used in providing captioning and descriptive narration for blind and hearing impaired audience members incorporating multiple formats of Film & Video with the latest DBX Audio.

The Cerrito has been lovingly restored and maintained in all of it’s 1937 glory with the famous Art Deco blue glass mirrors etched with the goddess Diana, hunting with her bow in hand in the oval jewel box lobby. Deco chandeliers and sconces grace the ceiling and walls. *Notice Charles’ custom t-shirt with Gazelles as depicted in the Cerrito’s unique art.

Comfortable chairs have been provided along with new theatre seating and many with tables or counter for enjoying the excellent menu of food drinks and snacks, beer and wine will be coming soon!
