California Theater, San Jose
The fabulous California Theatre, originally built in 1927, was beautifully restored and re-opened in September 2004. It has been transformed into not only a major performing arts center as well as conference and meeting facility.
This is a great place to see movies, the opera and other musical productions. It is worth keeping an eye on their schedule, because they have many one of a kind opportunities. Occasionally, for example, they show classic silent movies accompanied by a glorious theater organ, also carefully restored.
