The site that the Crest Theatre sits on has housed a theatre since 1912. The first, the Empress, was a vaudeville theatre which opened in 1913. The second, The Hippodrome, was originally a vaudeville house which converted to a motion picture theatre in the late 1920's. In 1946, the Hippodrome interior was demolished and the Crest was built inside the Hippodrome building shell.

The theatre then began to showcase films for thirty years, until late 1979 when a variety of factors including the decline of the K Street mall, television and the multiplex forced it to close. In 1986, the theatre was re-opened by a group of local Sacramentans with the vision of preserving the Crest for all of Sacramento to enjoy once again. In 1995, the Crest received a one million dollar restoration bringing Sacramento's last picture palace back to it's glittery 1940's appearance. The Crest boasts one of the most elegant settings Sacramento has to offer, featuring a fabulous gold leaf art deco interior.

Over the past ten years, the Crest has been a host to many different types of shows and events. It continues to host a program of classic and recent films, concerts, comedy and more.
