Capital Campaign

Rebuilding our iconic Novato Theater will be a downtown mecca that benefits all … today and for generations to come. It will be a cultural, aesthetic, educational, economic, historical and enjoyable venue – Goals are in place and waiting to be met … Operations are in waiting and ready to roll!

Hometown Theater

Designed to maintain its nostalgic “art deco” look, the rebuilt theater will have a large downstairs theater to seat 250, an upstairs theatre with 48 removable seats, a spacious lobby for receptions and concessions, and state-of-the-art sound and visual systems.


Programs and Workshops will celebrate the rich and diverse Novato community through entertainment, education, engagement and enrichment programs.
