The Village Theatre opened on March 18, 1947. It was closed in 2000 and stood unused for over a decade. In 2011 work began to convert it to a triple screen theatre. Interior designs were created by noted theatre interior designer, the late Joseph Musil. Murals in the auditoriums create 3-D optical illusions of historic places in both Coronado and Balboa Park. It opened on June 24, 2011 with "Cars 2." It features a large, vintage concession concession stand, an Art Deco lobby runs the length of the lobby and there are three theatres. The theatres also feature red-velvet, high back chairs.
The owner retained Joseph Musil as the designer for the the revamped theatre, which boasts one large auditorium and two luxurious screening rooms. Mr. Musil was the designer of the El Capitain theatre in Hollywood, among others.
