Alhambra: Sacramento's Palace of Fantasy - February, 21st
The Center for Sacramento History, in partnership with Matías Antonio Bombal, Chad E. Williams and executive producer Wendell Jacob, is proud to present the world premiere of Alhambra: Sacramento's Palace of Fantasy, at the Tower Theatre.
Over a year in research and production, using multiple assets in the collections of the Center for Sacramento History and the community, this documentary examines why the Alhambra Theatre (1927-1973) captured the imagination of all who entered and how its demise still sparks controversy nearly 50 years later.
The 55-minute documentary film highlighted with compelling interviews, pictures and newly-found movies that tell the story of Sacramento's beloved and lost Alhambra Theatre, a 1927 million-dollar temple to movies, music, and art for 46 years. The film's trailer can be viewed at


Screenings will take place Wednesday, February 21st, at 7 p.m. and 8:20 p.m. at Tower Theatre, 2508 Land Park Drive in Sacramento, at the corner of Land Park Drive and Broadway. Tickets are $30 each, available online only at www.centerforsacramentohistory.org. No tickets will be sold at the door. Seating is limited. A few tickets remain and we are expected to sell out both screenings. Proceeds will help preserve and provide public access to the Center's film collections.
As part of the Center's ongoing Speakers Series, this special evening is presented in partnership with the Sacramento History Alliance, a non-profit dedicated to supporting the Center through exhibitions, education, and programs. The Center educates and enriches the public by collecting, preserving and making accessible the region's vast cultural heritage.
