The Temple Theatre opened in a conversion of a former church which was built in 1844. It was opened on May 9, 1914 with Jack London’s “Sea Wolf”. The large house had 2,100 seats. Fashioned as a huge temple. When Vitaphone was introduced in 1927 they had huge letters on the front of the marquee announcing Vitaphone.
The Vita Temple Theatre had a short life as a horrendous fire destroyed the theatre on February 10, 1933. The temperatures were sub zero turning any water used to fight the fire into ice. The Vita Theatre was totally destroyed.
