California Theatre- San Jose
California Theatre- San Jose in San Jose
The company opened its 2004–2005 season in the 1,119 seat California Theatre, a former vaudeville and film theatre designed by Weeks and Day. On opening day in 1927, this 1,848 seat movie palace was said to be the finest theater in California. With its magnificent Jazz Age décor, it was part of a wave of ornate theaters built to define downtowns all over the country. For nearly 50 years the theatre showed films, until it's closure in 1973. It was left vacant for many years and had decayed, but reopened in 2004 after a $75 million dollar restoration project done expressly for Opera San Jose and as the result of large donations. This came as a big relief to local historians, who feared the building would be demolished like many other historic buildings in the city center. In 2004, the California Theatre reopened as a major performing arts facility designed both for live stage performances and for motion pictures. The new theatre is filled with modern amenities in a setting of meticulously restored 1920's opulence. It has been called one of the most beautiful theatres in the state, and is now the home of Opera San Jose and Symphony Silicon Valley.

In 2004 Team San Jose took over management of the facility and now promotes its venues and the theatre itself as a favorite place to hold events. A lavish conference facility with additional meeting rooms, and state-of-the-art audio and video technology, has been added to the original structure.
