Guadalupe Royal Theater - Guadalupe, CA

The preservation of the existing 1930s-era Royal Theater in downtown Guadalupe, California includes the restoration of the existing 5,300 square foot theater and an addition of a 5,000 square foot multi-purpose building. The design team worked with the engineers and historical preservation team to identify what needed to be restored and what could be improved based on the Secretary of the Interior Standards for Historic Buildings. The project also includes a small parking lot, adjacent landscaping, a small outdoor amphitheater, a public plaza, and grass lawn for outdoor movies. The hope of a new entertainment venue positioned to train new generations on the visual and performing arts is key to the City of Guadalupe’s future.
