The theater, a simple structure, a wood-frame building with a canvas roof. Although it was a small building with a simple, unpretentious construction, the theater cost $30,000 to build a measure of the scarcity of materials at the time.
The theater flooded in 1850 and was largely destroyed. It was eventually rebuilt at a slightly different location, 200 feet away. Over the years, the building has hosted a number of entertainment venues and has had numerous owners. Today, the theater is owned by the California Department of Parks and Recreation. and is part of the Old Sacramento State Historic Park.
