The plaque on the aged brick front wall of the theatre reads as follows: California's oldest existing theatre building, the Nevada, opened September 9, 1865. Celebrities such as Mark Twain, Jack London, and Emma Nevada have appeared on its stage. Closed in 1957, the theatre was later purchased through public donations and reopened May 17, 1968 to again serve the cultural needs of the community.

Posters like these graced many of the theatre's walls.
2nd floor hallway where EVPs were captured. Balcony entrances were just past the wall on the right. The theatre has many storage locations for theatre props and scenery such as the cubby hole in the foreground.
Carol and I investigated the theatre in January of 2016
While Carol investigated the first floor of the theatre, I climbed the stairs to the balcony level. When I reached the top landing, I captured this EVP on my Olympus digital voice recorder.
The following EVP was obtained in the 2nd floor hallway. The loud hum is from the heating system. I put my recorder down still recording and announced that I was going to take some pictures. This EVP seems to indicate that I also was photograped by "someone" with a noisy old fashioned camera!
"Pictures..." (couldn't make out the last part.)
