The Alameda Theatre originally opened August 16, 1932 with Marion Nixon in “Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm” & Laurel & Hardy in “The Chimp”. It had a seating capacity of 2,168. It was operated by the Nasser Bros. Theaters chain. It became a triplex on March 12, 1975 and closed in the 1980’s. It was later used as a gymnastics studio.
In 2005, plans were proposed to renovate and re-open the theatre. The original auditorium has reverted back to one space, with seven additional screens built next to the theatre, designed by the architectural firm The Henry Architects. The Alameda Theatre re-opened May 21, 2008.
