This theatre opened circa 1904 and was demolished in 1967. For a short time, late in its life, the Wharf Theatre Co. moved into the Monterey Theatre after their theatre burned on the Monterey Wharf.
The Monterey Theatre was always known as the flea house. The theatre had a sloping concrete floor. A former manager/projectionist told me kids loved to drop soda bottles at the back of the auditorium and get a charge from hearing them roll all the way to the orchestra pit!
In 1926 it was operated by T & D Jr. Enterprises and the Monterey Theatre was retro-fitted with a 2 manual 4 rank piano console Wurlitzer from the old O'Farrel Street Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco.
