Previous Names: El Monterey Theatre
The El Monterey Theatre was opened December 24, 1911. It was located downtown about a block behind and over from the Fremont Theatre which was built in 1940. By 1927 it was operated by the L. Lou Bard chain Far West Theatres Inc. After a remodel in 1928 it was was renamed Obispo Theatre. It was not as impressive as the Art Deco style Fremont Theatre on the outside but I suspect the interior was still original when the theatre was destroyed by fire in late-1975 or early-1976. The place looked like it had never been altered.
I was a student at Cal Poly during this period but never made it inside the Obispo Theatre before it burned.
