The Mission Theater was built in 1936 as a movie theatre. It was still screening movies into the 1970’s. In the late-1980’s this theatre was transformed into a live performance theatre.

Here’s a cool newspaper clipping showing all the movies playing in the general area back in 1975.

The Mission Theatre in Fallbrook, California, was listed in the “New Theaters” column of the January 14, 1937, issue of The Film Daily. It was also mentioned in the April 4, 1937, issue of Motion Picture Herald, which said that W. J. Eagleston had purchased the lease and furnishings of the Mission Theatre from the Fallbrook Theatre Corporation.

I’ve found opening dates claimed on theater web sites to be in conflict with the historical record several times. In some cases something bad might have happened to the original theater and it had to be replaced, but in others I think local memory has just gone a bit fuzzy.
