California (outside the L.A. Metro area)
Granada Theatre, Santa Barbara

Granada Theatre, Santa Barbara

First Opened: 9th April 1924
Photoshoot Completed: 19th September 2019

The Granada Theatre is Santa Barbara’s oldest standing movie palace and the tallest building in the city. Opened in May 1924, the Granada famously survived the devastating earthquake of 1925. A major renovation took place in the early 2000s, and in 2008 the theatre reopened as the destination for large-scale touring productions, and the new home for multiple Santa Barbara-resident companies including the Santa Barbara Symphony and Opera Santa Barbara.


San Diego Civic Theatre

San Diego Civic Theatre

First Opened: 12th January 1965

The San Diego Civic Theatre opened in early 1965, designed by modernist architect Lloyd Ruocco – one of San Diego’s most influential architects. The Civic is San Diego county’s largest performing arts venue and is home to Broadway in San Diego, San Diego Opera, and California Ballet.

The Gaiety Theatre was constructed on the site of a largely unsuccessful entertainment pavilion, and incorporates parts of the pavilion structure (most notably the roof) into the current building. Renowned UK theatre architect Frank Matcham was engaged to build the new theatre, and the Gaiety is now considered one of his finest surviving theatres.
