Arlington Theater

Arlington TheaterThe Arlington Theater was designed in the Mission Revival and Spanish Colonial Revival styles.   The ceilings of the lobbies are heavily beamed and painted. The auditorium is built to give the theatergoer the impression that he is sitting outside in the plaza of a colonial Spanish town.  Each wall features houses, staircases, and balconies, not painted on but built out from the walls.  The original ceiling remains to give patrons the impression that they are sitting outdoors under the stars.  Today, theatergoers can enjoy a variety of shows  – from the newest movie releases to live performances.  For further information call (805) 963-4408

Lobero Theater From its earliest days, the Lobero has been Santa Barbara’s grand stage for both community and professional performances.  The Lobero flourished in the 1920s with a glittering golden era of “preview performances” for Hollywood. Stage greats Lionel Barrymore, Tallulah Bankhead, and Bela Lugosi, as well as young musicians Vladimir Horowitz and Sergei Rachmaninoff, were among the giants who trod the Lobero Stage.  It is the home stage to most of the major performing arts groups in Santa Barbara including Opera Santa Barbara, State Street Ballet, Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra, Speaking of Stories, Sings Like Hell, CAMA’s Masterseries, Santa Barbara Youth Symphony, Flamenco Arts Festival, Santa Barbara Theatre, Music Academy of the West, and many others.  For further information call (805) 963-0761
