The Millbrae Theatre opened as a single screen on July 14, 1949. It seated approx. 1,000 and had a balcony. The lobby was fairly large and ornate. United Artists operated the theatre during the 1960’s up until approx. 1991.
The theatre was triplexed in 1985 (rather late in life - most were twinned and tri-plexed in the 1970’s).
In the early-1990’s UA leased the theatre out to Silver Screen Cinemas. UA decided to sell the property in 1993 or 1994 and Silver Screen cinemas vacated the property. The projectors from the theatre, all Norelco’s, were removed and installed in the Elmwood Theatre in Berkeley, CA.
The building was converted into a video store. However, the giant tall neon sign was saved and still sits on top of the building.
