Overview

Opened as the North Park Theatre in early 1929 by Fox West Coast Theatres, it was touted as the first theatre in the U.S. to be designed from its foundations upwards for the exhibiting of sound, synchronized, and talking pictures. In 2005 the theatre underwent a major renovation. It is now a popular and vibrant live entertainment and music venue.
