No one has favorited this theater yet
The three-story building at 18 N. Tejon Street cost $80,000, and many thought it could not be surpassed West of the Mississippi. The third story was a Masonic lodge and banquet room. It became a vaudeville house in 1904 and was converted to a movie theater in 1919. When its days of entertainment ended about 10 years later, it was converted into a storefront with a soda fountain and offices upstairs. In 1947 it was converted to a Woolworth store. In 1989 the variety store closed and the building became vacant.
After being remodeled into an office building, it is now a night club complex. S. N. Nye resigned in 1913 as manager of the opera house after 30 years in the position.
