Fractured Atlas
Sign in/up

The California Theatre is one of the best examples of the Art Deco style motion picture houses from the late 1920s. With $75 million dollars in renovations, the venue is breathtaking and will surely be the perfect backdrop for your event.

The theater boasts comfortable seating and fantastic acoustics which are enjoyed by musicians throughout the year. It’s no surprise that this historical masterpiece is home to Opera San Jose and Symphony Silicon Valley, but event planners are delighted to discover that it’s also a special conference and meeting facility – a place to gather when spectacular atmosphere is called for, as well as state-of-the-art audio and visual technology. The California Theatre is also a special facility for wedding ceremonies, cocktail receptions, presentations, product launches, corporate meetings, motion picture screenings, concerts, private parties, and so much more. It is located 2 blocks from the San Jose McEnery Convention Center, and within easy walking distance to several parking lots and excellent restaurants.The theater with its historic marquee and lavish grand foyer will leave your patrons saying “ooh and ahh.” We look forward to working with you and making your event the best yet!
