While it was clearly not a grand opening notice, the first advertisement uncovered on Peoples Theater was dated December 1, 1907. A movie entitled “The Signal Fire” was showing, along with assorted vaudeville acts. The Peoples Theatre was a small movie theatre inside the Civic Theater building.

Peoples Nickelodeon and the Civic Auditorium usually ran their newspaper advertisements together, confined within the same display column. Peoples ads usually were located in a bottom corner of the Auditorium ad frame. Also, both facilities opened November, 1907.
It is therefore a reasonable guess that Peoples (a small cinema) Nickeloeon was situated inside the sprawling Civic Auditorium Building on the corner of California & Walker. Most likely the Peoples interior decor matched that of the Auditorium, Craftsman/Mission Styling.
