This was the second Varsity Theatre to operate in Davis. It opened June 9, 1950 with John Payne in “The Eagle and the Hawk”. It was designed by architect William B. David, with Art Deco style murals on the splay walls of the auditorium designed by San Francisco based designer Gale Santocono. It operated as an 850-seat single screen movie house until 1975. From 1975 to 1990 movies shown on twin screens.
In 1992, it was de-twinned and from October 10, 1992 to present, it has been run by the City of Davis as a community theatre presenting live entertainment and occasional movies. In 2015 its program consists of 1st run movies and independent movies. By 2022 it was operating as a twin screen theatre again.
