About the Lompoc Theatre:

Built in 1927, the historic Lompoc Theater is legendary for its place in stage, music, and movie history. With its full stage and screen capabilities, orchestra pit, and amazing acoustics, the Lompoc Theatre is a versatile multi-use venue. From vaudeville to ballet, from symphonies to rock concerts, from vintage Hollywood classics to cutting-edge independent film, the Lompoc Theater has hosted it all.

Imagine your favorite movie there. Imagine your favorite musician, your kids’ school play, your nonprofit’s benefit event. It’s happened before. Help make it happen again.

Downtown Revitalization & Economic Development:

All across America, downtown areas in cities large and small are coming back to life, anchored by their historic theaters. Let’s make it happen here.

Our theater has street-level retail, upstairs offices, and a beautiful 450+ seat auditorium to sustain itself. It has nearby restaurants, cafes, bars, and parks, and it has location, location, location on world-famous California Highway 1.

A vibrant, self-sustaining theater draws people in to the downtown area to live, work, and play. Let’s bring a little light back to downtown, and watch what happens!
