Lonely Planet review for California Theater
On Dunsmuir Ave at downtown's north end stands what was once, and soon-to-be-again, the town's pride: the California Theater. In a grassroots community effort this long-defunct, once-glamorous venue is being carefully restored to its original glory. First opened in 1926, the theater hosted stars like Clark Gable, Carol Lombard, and the Marx Brothers. Today the lineup features musical performances, theater groups and comedians, as well as films.
