The Stanford Opera House opened in December 20, 1879. It was the first theatre in Stanford to run motion pictures beginning in 1911.
The Stanford Opera House was first operated by J.W. Rochester and C. Hays Foster, which would later be purchased by Marshall Stone who had the opportunity to start up motion pictures in Stanford. It was a vaudeville, motion picture, and live performance house all in one. There were three theatres in Stanford which were the Southland Theatre, the Stanford Opera House, and the “newly-made” Lincoln Theatre.
The Opera House closed in 1933, but three years afterward in August 1936, new management took over the Opera House and tried its attempt on reopening. However, the rest of its history remains lost.
