Roy’s Photoplay Theatre opened on March 5, 1913, according to a draft inventory of buildings in Burlingame, prepared as part of the city’s downtown planning process. The theater was designed by a local architect, J.J. Foley.

According to the inventory, the building as it is today probably “…does not retain sufficient integrity….” to qualify it for placement on the state or national historic registers.
