Listed in the 1941 and 1943 editions of Film Daily Yearbook, operating as the Royal Theatre. By the 1950 and 1952 editions of the Film Daily Yearbook it had its name changed to Victory Theatre.

In June 2005 it is standing closed and unused. The facade is plain brick with three windows on the second floor. The marquee has been removed as have the front entrance doors and wooden boards errected. There is still the remnant of the paybox at the entrance. It appears that the interior has been gutted.

Any further information on this theatre small neighborhood theatre would be appreciated

The Royal Theatre in Hanford was one of three houses taken over by Robert Lippert in 1942. Their former operator, Arthur Fukuda, closed them when, on March 27 that year, a curfew was imposed on Americans of Japanese ancestry.

The other Fukuda houses Lippert took over were in Sanger and in Guadalupe, California.
