The 400-seat Sequoia Theatre that was listed in the 1926 FDY was not this house, but the one downtown on K Street which later became the Sierra Theatre and finally the State Theatre.

In 1926 this stretch of Franklin Boulevard was probably still lined with bean fields. CinemaTour lists the Sequoia/Center Theatre on Franklin Boulevard as having opened in 1949. I see no reason to doubt it. The Sequoia is listed in the 1950 FDY with 900 seats.
