It’s hard to believe that this theater, with its rather ordinary exterior, was designed by famous theater architect S. Charles Lee. Opened in 1949 as the Visalia Theatre, showing John Wayne in "She Wore A Yellow Ribbon," its quonset hut auditorium originally seated more than 600.
Today it pales when compared to the well-known Visalia Fox, four blocks away, whose architect is unknown. The Fox, however, seems to be very similiar to the atmospheric theaters Lee designed for the Fox circuit in the 1930s.
Since 1997 the theater has been home to the family-oriented Enchanted Playhouse whose mission is to "Enchant, surprise, excite and amuse audiences, young and old." The theater is also available for rental to the community.
