The North Park Theatre opened as a 1,200-seat theater on January 17, 1929 and was a popular movie house for over sixty years. It closed in 1989. After more than a decade of laying dormant, the theater was reopened as an 800-seat live performance venue on 30th September 2005 by the Lyric Opera San Diego .
The city had owned the North Park Theatre since 1990 and sold the old movie house to its redevelopment agency in order to complete a $900,000 structural and seismic retrofitting. After completion, the theater was then sold to a developer for $1 who were responsible for organizing a $2.5 million renovation and restoration project.
