Having both North Sacramento and Old North Sacramento as locations for these theaters is not exactly what I had in mind. The two names refer to the same place; a single district of the City of Sacramento, which was once a separate incorporated city called North Sacramento, but which was dissolved and subsequently annexed to Sacramento itself in 1964. Both theaters ended up inside the corporate limits of the City of Sacramento, so should be listed as being in Sacramento, with North Sacramento (or Old North Sacramento) listed only as the district.

North Sacramento was a separate incorporated city for forty years, but has been a district of the City of Sacramento since 1964. That’s where it should be listed, with North Sacramento as the district.

Also, the Grand Theatre is currently listed in “Old North Sacramento,” which is the same neighborhood.

The sidewalk in front of where this theater stood still says “Del Paso” on it as part of the old entrance—a very nice memorial and grave marker.
