Santa Cruz in Santa Cruz County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Old Theatre Building
Created by designers of the original Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, the New Santa Cruz Theatre opened its doors on February 12, 1920, with a rousing Mack Sennett comedy. Except for a major facelift in 1938, the New Santa Cruz Theatre continued showing films until the evening of December 22, 1955, when the raging San Lorenzo River left its banks and engulfed the lobby. In 1976, demolition began to rebuild the Old Theatre Building of today.
