The Casino Theater opened around 1913. It underwent a remodeling in the 1930’s into an Art Deco style. In the early 1970’s it was operated by Pussycat Theatre, retaining the Casino name.

The building is now home to the Ghirardelli Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop.

The San Diego Reader has compiled all its articles about former Casiono operators Walnut Properties onto one webpage, along with around 100 graphics and photos that never appeared in ANY of the published versions. Also included is a Pussycat Theatre mini-history, updates on various Walnut-related lawsuits, etc, as well as a bunch of vintage Casino newspaper ads.

I’ve been in this store. I never connected it with being a theater, despite the marquee. Live and learn.
