News About This Theater
- Sep 27, 2005 — Tower Theater in Marysville to Become Office Space?
- Feb 20, 2004 — Today's Newsreel
The Tower Theatre is located in downtown Marysville and opened January 17, 1941 with Gene Autry in “Carolina Moon” & The Three Stooges in “Quail Quest”. Located in a historic commercial district of an old gold rush town. Many beautiful brick buildings around it. Other historic sites include the Bok Kai temple and St. Joseph’s Church, a fine piece of Gothic style architecture built in 1853. About 10 mile drive from the Sacramento Valley auditorium.
It was abandoned since at least the 1970’s. I remember during my childhood, that it was a porno theatre, then, for a while, it was a Mexican hall, then some type of storefront church, and then a restaurant. The auditorium was converted into office space, and in late-2011, plans are to convert the foyer into a museum.
It would be nice if somebody did some research on it. There’s not much about it other than that it was designed by a William B. David of David Associates.
