A rare documentary about the history of the Yost Theater in Santa Ana has reemerged online as current management of the renovated venue looks to an April 2011 grand opening with food and bar services. The twenty-minute short El Yost en la Ciudad de Oro (The Yost in the City of Gold) was put together by an ambitious group of young, educated, college-aged Santaneros and screened at the historic theater on April 12th, 2008, as part of a grand re-opening “Barrio Night” event organized and sponsored by El Centro Cultural de Mexico, Calacas, and the Fiesta Marketplace where the Yost stands.

The film raised pertinent issues then that remain all too relevant now as we enter 2011. Read more about the contentious history of the Yost and view El Yost en la Ciudad de Oro in its entirety on the OC Weekly Heard Mentality blog article I authored and published yesterday:
