The Clark Theatre opened in 1926. By 1941, it had been renamed Vacaville Theatre. It underwent some improvements in 1952, by San Francisco based architect/designer Gale Santocono.

In the early-1960’s, this theatre was part of the West Side-Valley Theatre chain. Closed for many years, a renovation & restoration project began in 2013 and was completed in January 2014. It was suddenly closed on September 17, 2014.

THIS SUCKS! As most of you know, I have been a big promoter of the new Deville Theater here in Vacaville. Suddenly, the doors closed today. I’m not going to speculate here, but I’ll be it has something to do with greedy promoters not wanting our “little” town to have such a great venue, with big name, great acts! Here’s the official press release from The Reporter.

Theatre DeVille closes its doors By Reporter Staff POSTED: 09/17/2014 01:09:56 PM PDT

The Theatre DeVille in downtown Vacaville has closed its doors. In a brief message through their law firm, the owners announced that the theater, at 308 Main Street, which had opened in January after a massive year-long renovation and meticulous reconstruction is canceling the remainder of its scheduled shows. “DeVille thanks all of its supporters and well-wishers that have visited the Theatre since its re-opening in January. DeVille has been committed to making the Theatre a great place for the Downtown area and all of Vacaville,” the statement reads. “While closed, DeVille will seek a new formula to make the Theatre the destination Vacaville deserves and can use while accommodating the competitive realities of the Theatre’s location between San Francisco, Sacramento and Napa.” The announcement says that anyone who has pre-purchased tickets for an event scheduled after today, “will receive a full refund.” It goes on to apologize for the “inconvenience and disappointment to its great patrons and all those who have supported it in its journey thus far” and adds that “DeVille looks forward to finding a format that works for the community and the Theatre’s neighbors while honoring the Theatre’s heritage.” DeVille officials declined comment and referred calls to their attorneys.
