Santa Cruz


A Brief History
In the mid-1800's, the Pacific Garden Mall was simply known as "Pacific." The corner now occupied by the Old Theatre Building contained a picturesque little pond shaded by a mammoth sycamore. Also under the tree was a huge cider press. Pioneers would pick apples in a nearby orchard and press a supply of cider before heading on.
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.
