    The Crest originally opened in 1912 as the Empress Theatre, and at that time was used as a vaudeville palace. It later became the Hippodrome. in 1949, the building was completely remodeled and revamped to its current form as the Crest Theatre. During the 1950s and 1960s, it was one of the premier first-run movie palaces in the Sacramento area. During the 1970s, it showings were reduced to mostly sub-run fare and in the early 1980s the Crest closed down. Several attempts were made to revive the Crest (including a dinner theatre idea) and around 1995, the Movie House was completely refurbished. Today its main auditorium (which has been left in its post-1946 unaltered state) is a multi-purpose theatre showing classic revival and specialty films, various film festivals, occasional live shows and lectures. Two additional cinemas were built adjacent to the original site around the time of the remodeling.

    I love old Classic Movie Theatres and the Crest is a beauty. And when I'm on a business trip and just want to kick back and relax for the evening, what's better than taking a short walk from the Hotel and seeing a Motion Picture?

    A great small venue. I love it when I saw Danzig, and A Perfect Circle here. The venue is nice and laid back. A great place to see who is playing. Sometimes you might be surprised of the names that show up.
