Arena Theater is a 1928-vintage vaudeville theater and film palace, restored in 1996 to an Art Deco style, state-of-the-art entertainment venue with generous support from local artisans and financial donations. Arena Theater Association is an all-volunteer community, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that maintains Arena Theater and brings live performances and artists to the stage of this Mendocino Coast venue.
Situated on Highway One in Downtown Point Arena, California's smallest city, Arena Theater operates every day of the year. The anchor of the theater is the Arena Cinema, which shows first run movies.
Mounted on a hardwood floor, Arena Theater has 177 fully upholstered and comfy built-in seats with arm rests. With the addition of portable folding seats it can seat 250 people. The first two rows of seats can be removed to enlarge the dance floor as needed.
