About the Spreckels

Located in the heart of the downtown Theatre District on Broadway, The Spreckels Theatre opened its doors in 1912. Since then, this magnificent 1,463 seat theatre has played host to San Diego’s finest attractions; first as a Vaudeville Opera house; then as a movie palace of the motion picture hey-days; and now, again as a live presentation venue. The Historic Spreckels Theatre has hosted world renowned soloists; top theatrical productions; star attractions; first run films; touring acts; international companies for music, theatre, and dance: celebrated comics; and even the circus productions. San Diego’s cultural performance companies and great performances from the world stage have all graced this elegant venue for over 100 years. The Spreckels Theatre was honored to be designated a National Historic Site in 1973.
