The Admiral Theatre opened in 1919 as the Portola Theatre, they showed silent movies in the single room that is now the lobby. In 1942, the present theater was added and re-designed with a nautical theme by the same architect who created the ornate Hollywood Pantages in Los Angeles. The theatre is built around a nautical theme and has etched glass (with Seahorses) hanging in the lobby. In the 1940’s the exterior of the theatre sported a real ship’s mast complete with Crow’s Nest.
