Local Plays at the Granada

The Granada Theater on Fifth Street was one of two movie theaters in Hollister for several decades. State Theater, the larger—and probably the older—one stood on the corner of San Benito and Seventh Streets. The 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake damaged the State Theater, and sometime later it was burned down in a fire.

As a kid, I remember the Granada showed Spanish-language movies.  Today, local theater groups present live performances there. Starting tonight, the San Benito Stage Company will be performing the musical Monty Python's Spamalot.

The Granada Theater is available for rent. Contact the San Benito Stage Company for information.
