Located on East Los Angeles Avenue between the Sycamore Drive and Tapo Canyon exits of the 118 Freeway, the Gothic structure has enjoyed a variety of tenants before being acquired in 1991 by the City of Simi Valley for reuse as a Cultural Arts Center.
Having been approved as Ventura County Historical Landmark No. 67 in July of 1981, refurbishing the building meant preserving the historical integrity as well. The result is a spectacular Neo-Classis structure in gleaming columned glory showcasing hints of its former life. With the first refurbishing, the church pews, cushioned for comfort, were used as seating on the theater's main floor. Today some of them grace the lobby as seating for patrons prior to shows and during intermission. But the pew ends were incorporated into the theater seating to preserve the integrity of the theater's original design.
