The Lido Theatre was created in 1942 within the stage house of the 1929 built, Riverside Theatre. It had it’s own separate entrance and marquee at the rear side of the building and the conversion was designed by architect Clifford A. Balch.
A similar scheme was carried out at the Redlands Theatre, Redlands, California (also operated by Fox West Coast Theatres).
The Lido Theatre was renamed Stage One Theatre on April 29, 1966 and began screening adult movies. It was taken over by Walnut Properties in 1978, and became an X-Rated theatre in the Pussycat Theatres chain. It was closed in around 1992, together with the Fox Riverside Theatre and the entire building remained vacant for many years.
It was purchased by the city in 2006, and they began a 32 million Dollar restoration on the Riverside Theatre in 2009. The old stage-house (former Lido Theatre) was restored and enlarged by 20 feet, as the new stage for the Fox Performing Arts Center, which reopened on January 15, 2010.
