The Presidio Theatre opened on July 1, 1937 as the El Presidio Theatre, a last run movie house. In the 1990’s, it became a first run showplace.
After closing in 2003 as a single screen theatre, the Presidio reopened December 25, 2004 as a four screener. The former orchestra seating has the original screen. The auditorium’s sheetmetal sunburst chandelier was removed in the transition. The former balcony has two 100 seat, stadium seated auditoriums. The fourth screen is an additional screening room.
