Overview

Opened in 1924 as a vaudeville theatre and movie palace, architect William H. Wheeler designed the Balboa in a combination of Moorish and Spanish Revival styles. Wheeler incorporated 20ft-high waterfalls into the auditorium, flanking the proscenium arch and helping to assist with air cooling within the theatre. The Balboa underwent an extensive renovation in 2005 and reopened in 2008.
