Opened prior to 1924 as the Hill Opera House. By 1941, it had been renamed California Theater and was operated by the T & D Jr. Enterprises chain. It had seating for 1,225.
The Phoenix Theater, run by Thomas Gaffey opens its doors in the afternoon to teens who might have no place else to go—kids who don’t want to go home to abusive or absent parents; adolescents who just want a comfortable place to spend time, away from the watchful eyes of local police, around an adult who understands and respects them — someone who grew up in the same environment. Calling themselves the “Phoenix Family”, these teens not only hang out at the theater but help keep the place clean, including performing minor repairs and renovations.
