Historical Timeline

308 Main Street, Vacaville, California

1926: The establishment, initially named Clark Theatre, was operational as a church and cinema projecting popular Hollywood hits during the silent film era.

 

1940’s: It was renamed to Vacaville Theatre when bought by the West-Side Valley Theatre Chain.

 

1952: Architect Gale Santocono from San Francisco conducted several enhancements.

 

1965: A remodel occurred based on architect Alexander McKenzie Cantin’s designs.

 

2012: Investors started an extensive renovation of this nearly 10,000 sq. ft., 3-story building with ambitious plans to transform the theatre into a major entertainment facility—hosting nationally recognized performances and big private events.

 

2014: After a $2 million transformation, it reopened as DeVille Theatre. It operated as a live entertainment venue hosting concerts, stand-ups, wrestling matches, movie screenings and more accompanied by a full-service lobby bar. Over the following six years, DeVille underwent multiple ownership changes and temporary closures until live shows were halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

2021: Nicole and Morne Van Staden purchased the Theatre DeVille, renaming it “Journey Downtown”. They are also owners of Journey Coffee, that originated as a coffee truck in Vacaville’s Premium Outlets in 2013.
