The Center for Sacramento History, in partnership with Matías Antonio Bombal, Chad E. Williams and executive producer Wendell Jacob, are proud to present the world premiere of ALHAMBRA: Sacramento’s Palace of Fantasy at the Tower Theatre (2508 Land Park Drive, Sacramento, CA 95818) on Wednesday, February 21, 2018.  Screenings will take place at 7 p.m. and 8:20 p.m. 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. Advance tickets are $30 each and available online only at  With limited seating available, tickets are expected to sell-out quickly for this fundraising event.

The 55-minute documentary film ALHAMBRA: Sacramento’s Palace of Fantasy is 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
