This is an exciting time as most Chico locals grew-up going to the El Rey Theater.
It's been around since 1906 that's why when it went up for sale in 2007 many panicked that it would become an apartment complex or restaurant.
That's when the community rallied together to create the El Rey Alliance Group to see if the theater could be saved.
Then three businessmen from San Luis Obispo bought the building and decided to keep it as a theater.
The venue now features a state of the art RCF line array sound system, a 10x20 foot high definition LED video wall, and additional ceiling mounted trussing, pars, spots, and moving lights.
This is just the first phase in continuing our journey to make the El Rey Theater Chico’s premier performance and event venue so to raise money the owners are throwing a grand opening fundraiser Saturday, February 10th.
