Information for this tour was contributed by Ron Andrews.
The Ebell Theatre, part of the womens' Ebell Club, was built in 1924. It had Spanish-inspired architecture and seated more than 1000. It showed up in newspaper theater listings from the late 1930s and into the early 1950s. Today it still houses the Ebell clubhouse, but all signs that would indicate that it was ever a commercial theater have been removed, because a quiet residential neighborhood has grown up around it.
