    Tower Theater

    The best place is the Tower district - Fresno's half mile of culture. Primarily populated by artists, bohemians, and people too poor to live in San Francisco; the Tower district's centerpiece its the Art Deco Tower Theater on the corner of Olive and Wishon Avenues. Don't be confused by the Water Tower in Downtown Fresno - although it does look cool, it has no district to call its own.

    In the Tower District you WILL NOT find big name retailers, except for Blockbuster and a Starbucks. But you WILL find performance venues (the Starline, Club Fred, Tower Theater), 20+ restaurants with award winning cuisine (Veni Vidi Vici, Daily Planet , Rousseau, Senses World Cuisine, Livingstones and many others); 2 theaters (Roger Rocka's dinner theater and the Second Space) several galleries, a microbrewery (Sequoia Brewing Co) and some neat gift shops and bookstores. The best place to catch live entertainment in the city!

    The Tower Theatre & District

    The Tower District, centred on the Tower Theatre, is one of the most lively and interesting partes of town to visit for food, entertainment, etc.

    It's in the old part of town some blocks north of downtown and centered on Olive Ave near Wishon and Van Ness. The theatre itself is at the corner of Wishon and Olive and is a beautiful old art-deco cinema.
