The Pittsburg California Theatre received a $1 million donation from the John H. and Regina K. Scully Foundation to complete renovations and improvements. These will increase seating capacity by approximately 150 seats and make additional improvements, enhancing the viability of the theatre.
“It’s not every day that a community gets a $1 million donation,” said City Manager Garrett Evans. “The John and Regina Scully Foundation will go down in history of this community for its giving spirit.”
Built by Sylvester and Salvatore Enea, the California Theatre opened in 1920 as a premiere venue for live vaudeville performances and silent films.
