San Diego Theatres welcomes the opportunity to work with you and to make your event a success.
The historic Balboa Theatre was originally opened in 1924 as a vaudeville house before being converted to a movie theatre in 1932. After a $26 million restoration and renovation by the City’s Redevelopment Agency, the Balboa Theatre located in the Gaslamp Quarter reopened in 2008 as a 1,339 seat performing arts venue. The Balboa Theatre is owned by the Redevelopment Agency and managed by San Diego Theatres on behalf of the Agency and the community. This venue will be treasured as an ideal site for music, dance, and drama as well as for civic, corporate and convention gatherings.
The Civic Theatre is a 2,967 capacity performing arts venue located in downtown San Diego. It is the performing home of the San Diego Opera, Broadway/San Diego and regularly hosts performances of the California Ballet, presentations by La Jolla Music Society, touring orchestras and dance companies, Broadway musicals and plays, concerts, film presentations, lectures, etc. The Theatre is owned by the City of San Diego and operated by San Diego Theatres for the benefit of the community.
