Designed in 1941 but not built until 1948 because of WWII. The Ukiah opened September 8, 1948, for George Mann's birthday. The Ukiah was built under the company name of Trinity Theaters, which was owned by Mann, and then after it was built, it was transfered to his Redwood Theatres company. It was common practice for his theatres to be built for one company and then transfered to another.
The Ukiah Theatre was remodeled in January of 1994 by Redwood Theatres, then still owned by the Mann family. It was George Mann, Jr. who saved the theatre from being gutted.
The Ukiah Theatre was once again remodeled in 2005 by Signture Theatres (which had by then acquired Redwood Theatres). Stadium seating was installed but the sound issues were not corrected.
The architect is currently being questioned. The Ukiah is listed in "The Show Starts on the Sidewalk" as being designed by the firm of S. Charles Lee. There are sources that say William B. David was the architect, but he had already left the Lee firm years before the design date.
The date of design comes from the April 14, 1948, edition of the Ukiah Republican Press.
The tower of the Ukiah Theatre was part of an apartment that was built for George Mann. The apartment is still there, even though the access has been changed.
