The Royal Theatre was built in 1916, designed by the Reid Brothers. It was completely remodeled by Timothy Plfueger during the mid-1930’s for the Nasser Brothers chain which operated it at the time.
Sitting on a stretch of Polk Street that became run-down as time passed, the theater’s vertical sign was a local landmark. The same decorative motif was gracefully applied to the facade and the organ grilles. The family that owned this theater also owned the Castro Theatre and the nearby Alhambra Theatre.
The Royal Theatre was demolished in June of 2003 except for the facade and certain architectural elements, which was incorporated into housing constructed on the site.
