This historic venue was built in 1912 and since then has been host to a variety of shows including plays, musicals, comedy shows and concerts. The Spreckles Theatre has been a vaudeville house, a movie palace, and now a theater. This architectural masterpiece is considered as one of the finest theaters in the country.
Originally built in 1924, the historic Balboa Theater has now been beautifully restored to its former glory. The place, originally operating as a movie theater was shut down once but was opened again to the public in January 2008. If you are a lover of beautiful architecture and the performing arts, this place will surely charm you. The theater building is heavily influenced by the Spanish Baroque style of architecture. A number of concerts and live performances are held at this 1399-seater theater.
This theater complex is a state-of-the-art, popular venue for unusual arts presentations, and is the primary home of the prestigious San Diego Repertory Theatre. Located under Horton Plaza, the complex is comprised of three stages: the medium-sized Space Theater; the larger, aptly-named Stage Theater; and the small Underground Stage, each offering different presentations. Each holiday season, the Repertory presents 'A Christmas Carol', which has become a tradition for San Diego families. Show your ticket for free all-day validated parking at the Horton Plaza parking structures. A practical tip would be to pay close attention to which painted fruit or vegetable symbolizes the level on which you have parked, so you can easily find your car later.
This Balboa Park theater is dedicated to Marie Hitchcock, who delighted San Diego children for decades with her puppet shows. Both professional and amateur puppeteers stage performances here all year long. The shows, each lasting 30-45 minutes, include marionette and hand-puppet performances, as well as rare ventriloquist acts. The theater only seats 230 people, so guests are advised to arrive early. Tickets are not available until the day of the performance.
