After more than 30 years of presenting a wide variety of independent film -- including foreign, underground and re-released classics -- and more recently the latest Hollywood releases, the Camera Cinemas have become an important institution in the local film community. Our theaters have made vital contributions to the cultural life of San Jose, Campbell and Los Gatos, and, most importantly, have become a symbol of the very loyal and committed support of their audiences, people like you.In fact, the people who started the Cameras are very much like the film buffs who support the Cameras today, except that in the early 1970s there was no place in the South Bay to see quality independent or international film. James Zuur, Jack NyBlom and Dennis Skaggs, aspiring filmmakers and major cinema fans, used to make the long drive to Berkeley several times a week to see movies like Children of Paradise, 400 Blows and Casablanca. Frustrated with this trek, they, along with two other partners, opened the now legendary Camera One Theater on Sept. 6, 1975 at 366 S. First Street in downtown San Jose, featuring a double bill of A Man And A Woman and Chinatown. Camera One closed in May, 2004, and has recently become home for the Anno Domini alternative art gallery.
