The Broadway Theatre was opened March 21, 1930. It was renamed Encore Theatre in April 1965 and closed in 1972. It became a church. The outside of this theatre gave no indication of what was on the inside. For years this theatre lay dormant while a man known as ‘The Rev’ worked inside restoring this old structure. It was a wonderful theatre with red carpets, a mural of the daytime sky on the celing, and angels looking down from their perches high above the floor.
Despite its adornments, one thing this theatre lacked was luck. The city of Burlingame deemed it unsafe and condemed the Encore Theatre saying it would not survive a earthquake. Despite its supposedly flimsy construction, it took the city a full three days to demolish the building in 1998.
