Information for this tour was contributed by William French Jr.
The El Camino could seat 1300 and had an organ. This theatre was converted in the 1950s into a J.C. Penny's but the ceiling and the proscenium survived until the early 2000s, when it was gutted and turned into offices. When it was converted to Penny's, the lobby and tower were demolished. The building sat empty for many years and has been converted into offices, as of 2005.
