A reference to the Coast Theatre first appeared in the Santa Ana Register March 2, 1927 and Billboard Magazine reported March 5, 1927, that Ira Patterson had opened the theatre. Film Daily Year Book 1928 listed a Seal Beach Theatre with 200 seats, which in the 1929 issue became the Coast Theatre with 200 seats.

FDYB 1932 gave it an asterisk, meaning it wasn’t wired for sound and in 1933 it was listed as closed.
