I haven’t been in downtown Sacramento in about 15 years, but when I was there, I walked around to all the locations where theatres had once been, and although the theatre itself was gone, the office tower still appeared just as it is in the photo in the previous post, except that the marquee frame was being used to display signage for the Taco Bell occupying the front of the building.

The January 4, 1913, issue of The Moving Picture World had an item about the Sequoia Theatre. The house had opened on November 22, 1910, with 600 seats. It was exclusively a movie house, and the building was 36 feet wide by 130 feet deep, with a lobby 20 feet deep. The operator of the Sequoia was Isidor F. Morris.

This 1913 photo shows the Sequoia Theatre on the ground floor of the Sequoia Hotel building. This 1927 photo of K Street shows the Sequoia Theatre at right. The house had become the Sierra Theatre by the time this photo was made in August, 1932.
