The eighth installment of my historical Santa Barbara blog series is on another pretty well known landmark of Santa Barbara, The Arlington Theater. It qualifies for SB Unknown because not many people know the history of this beautiful theater.
The Arlington Theater is located in the Heart of Downtown Santa Barbara is home to vast seating including a balcony, which seats up to 2,000 people. The interior of the Theater is Spanish style and has an outdoor feel, which is because of the stary night ceiling and the Spanish villa’s that surround you. While the outside of the Theater is a Spanish style and has a kind of a 60s feel, and has long outdoor hallway with a giant fountain. The Arlington Theater was built in 1931 on the site of the previous Arlington Theater (which was destroyed in the earthquake of 1925), and was later restored in 1971. The Theater was designed by the Santa Barbara architectural firm of Edwards and Plunkett.
the Arlington Theater is a beautiful part of Santa Barbara, the address is 1317 State Street
