Information for this tour was contributed by Ken Roe.

This cinema was built in 1928 to replace a wooden structure that housed a silent movie theatre on the site. The El Rancho was the only "talking movie" theatre in the east end of Ventura County. It closed as a movie house in the 1950s to become used as activities such as school and community productions, a Spanish theatre and a junk shop. It re-opened as a live theatre in 1982.
