THE HISTORIC CALIFORNIA THEATRE OF THE PERFORMING ARTS

The San Bernardino Symphony performs most its subscription concerts in the beautiful and historic California Theater, right at many music lovers’ doorsteps in downtown San Bernardino. This magnificent performing arts venue was designed specifically to accommodate orchestral performances. Each seat is enveloped by the deep and rich sounds of the San Bernardino Symphony, giving each audience member an unmatched concert-going experience.

 

Constructed between 1927 and 1928, the California Theatre was opened by Fox West Coast Theaters on August 15, 1928. On June 28, 1935, Will Rogers gave his last public performance at the California Theatre. Less than two months later, on August 15, 1935, Rogers and famed aviator Wiley Post perished in a plane crash in Alaska. In 1997, two large exterior murals of Will Rogers were painted by Ken Twitchell on the east and west facades of the California Theater to commemorate the final performance of America’s finest humorist.
