The Hanford Opera House launched April 24, 1893. In 1915, a large, $8,000 Wurlitzer pipe organ provided live music accompaniment as the Opera House moved to feature film presentations. In March of 1917, Turner and Dahnken / T & D took on the location. with an automated entry system. On December 19. 1925, T & D took on the Pastime Theatre and created the New T & D Theatre there.

The opera house got another chance when Golden State Theatres took on the former opera house in 1926 under the Golden State Theatre launching November 20, 1926 with “The Marriage Clause.” But a June 18, 1928 fire badly damaged the facility’s facade with equipment removed in August of that year. Rebuilt, the opera house became a mixed-use property in 1932. A major renovation in the 1980s turned it into a hotel opening in 1986.
