The El Presidio opened in 1937. The name was shortened to "Presidio" in 1951.

The Century Theatres lease on this marina district landmark ran out in August 2003 and independent theater operator Frank Lee signed a 33-year lease on the property. The theater closed and received a half-million dollar remodel, transforming the single screen into four screens by creating two 100-seat auditoriums in the former balcony and adding a small screening room to the side. The remodeled theater reopened on Christmas Day 2004.
