The theater was built in 1935 by R. D. Moore Construction to a design by architect W.D. Coates. By 1941 it was operated by T & D Jr. Enterprises. The city partnered for a 1998 restoration.

The theater was destroyed by fire November 15, 2003. It was rebuilt and reopened in May 2010.

A hundred years from now? I don’t think I can make that one.

As someone already noted, you have to list the address as Kings Street, not King. Otherwise the map view puts you in Kettleman City.

…the status should be “open” and no longer restoring…

I have been by the Avenal a couple of times in the past year, and it seems that they are no longer showing movies, just hosting occasional events for the town, such as meetings.
