Does anybody live near the Park Theater at 3798 San Pablo Dam Road in El Sobrante, CA?

I'm doing research on an Elvis project for Paramount and need to get more information on the current status of this building.

Many thanks!

Bob

A check on Google maps shows that it became the Peniel Missionary Baptist Church, but in May 2011 (if the image date is correct) it was for sale. If they still own it, the listed number (via a business directory) is (510) 222-3457.

Here's the image:

And a close up of the contact details for those who were handling the sale:

There's further contact details here for the two names listed in the image:

If the direct number for the church doesn't work, hopefully one of them will be able to give you up-to-date news.

I live less than a mile from this building! I believe there are new owners because it looks a little better now. There are glass brick crosses in the windows. And the previous Pastor's name has been painted over. What on earth does Elvis Presley have to do with El Sobrante, California?

Could we have more details about the project you're working on or is it top secret? :)
