The theater has hosted everything from silent films to Broadway theater, and special shows such as 'Late Night with Conan O'Brien.' It is modeled in the style of a 12th century Spanish Cathedral, being heavily influenced by both 'Spanish Moorish' and 'Spanish Baroque' architecture. It has ornate architectural detailing inside and was designed by architect Benjamin Marcus Priteca.
