The Royal was one of three theaters taken over from Arthur Fukuda by Robert Lippert in April, 1942. Fukuda had closed his three houses when a dusk-to-dawn curfew had been imposed on Americans of Japanese ancestry on March 27 that year.

According to the March 18, 1949, issue of Boxoffice, Lippert had recently bought the Sanger Theatre, formerly operated by Frank Panero. Lippert continued to operate the Royal as well. The Sanger Theatre is not yet listed at Cinema Treasures.

The September 1, 1939, issue of Boxoffice Magazine said that Arthur Fukuda was building a new theater at Sanger. The February 10, 1940, issue said that Fukuda was to have opened his new theater in Sanger on the 9th. The first mention I’ve found of the house actually in operation and being called the Royal was in the March 16, 1940, issue.
