The Banning Theatre opened as a single screen in May 1928. Later taken over by Fox West Coast Theatres. It has now been split into a triplex, and is still in operation.

The theatre was renovated in November 2009.

This page is missing the aka under which the house opened in 1928, the Banning Theatre. That’s probably why a duplicate Cinema Treasures listing was recently created for it.

I love the fact that this is an old theatre. Built in 1928, made it interesting to me. I visited it for the first time in 1978 and became a steady customer. Drive from riverside Ca, whenever a new movie comes out, we prepare ourselves to enjoy the whole movie experience by having their delicious popcorn on one hand, a juicy hot dog on the other, and our soft drink of choice! since their renovation, it’s now more comfortable, very nice to look at, although the letters on the marquee above the ticket booth are a bit small for my eyes to read, the people are nice and respectful, and it just feels like it’s my very own family theatre. Did I mention their prices?? $5.00 to watch a good movie is extremely reasonable, with yet wednesdays for less! I hope it stays in business for many, many years.

A January 28,1974 story in Box Office Magazine about the theatres' reopening by a Kansas couple who said that no R or X movies would play there after the previous owner turned it into a short-lived porn theatre.(National General closed it in ‘73)
