Edwards theater on Bradley Road now closed in Santa Maria

It's the end of an era in Santa Maria.

The Edwards Cinemas theater on Bradley Road closed Nov. 10, and movie titles are now stripped from the marquee, the smell of popcorn is gone and the once-full theaters empty.

Looking through the glass front doors of the theater, near the box office, dim lights still glow, the bright neon lights now out. The empty concession stands have seen the soda dispensers, popcorn machines and other equipment removed from behind counters. An array of theater memorabilia is strewn across the floor.
