The Yost Theater

A structure that stands out in Santa Ana's Historic Downtown District, the Yost Theater is the oldest operational theater in all of Orange County. Opened in 1912, as a vaudeville theater during the Golden Age of Mexican Cinema, the theater underwent a few change of names, and finally received the name 'Yost Theater' in 1919, when it was purchased by Ed Yost. A place where a glorious and eventful past thrives amid the flourish of modern technology, the Yost Theater still retains the role of being a premier event venue in Orange County, playing host to some of the biggest names in the music and entertainment industry.
