Seating 1600 people, it was the largest theatre between San Francisco and Los Angeles, and could hold 25% of Monterey’s population.

His plan to restore the theatre to its 1926 glory, making it once again a true performing arts center, has proceeded rapidly. And today the theater is once again a place of entertainment, taking its rightful place as a historical monument, enjoyed by the entire Monterey community.
