An article in the 1/28/1943 edition of the Sacramento Bee reported that Lippert had purchased this theatre from J.W. DiStasio, one of the few remaining independent theater owners in Sacramento.

An article in the 4/14/1951 Sacramento Bee reported that Kemla Theaters of Sacramento would assume management duties from Lippert.
