The El Rancho Theatre was built in 1928 to replace a wooden structure that housed a silent movie theater on the site. The El Rancho was the only “talking movie” theater in the east end of Ventura County.
It closed as a movie house in the 1950’s to be used for activities such as school and community productions, a Spanish theater and a junk shop. It was re-opened as a live theater in 1982.
Now a city owned theatre with limited production genres. Melodrama is no longer permitted and it rarely offers youth or community-orientated performances, as it is quite expensive for most community groups to rent.
