The Santa Cruz 9 was designed by the San Francisco architectural firm Uesugi & Associates, which did quite a bit of work for the Signature Theatres chain before it was taken over by Regal.

The vertical sign tower of this theatre, while a completely original and unusual piece of metal scultpture and neon, nods its head slightly to the 1930s tower which was once on the “old” Santa Cruz Theatre down the street (1920, remodeled 1939, changed to office and retail by the 1970s). The crescent moon on one side of the Santa Cruz 9’s sign tower and the star on the other side, as well as the stepped structure crowning the tower pay tribute to motifs on the old tower applied during the 1939 remodeling of the earlier theatre.
