Balboa Performing Arts Theater Foundation
Since 1928, the Balboa Theater has been a treasured historic landmark, one that served countless visitors until closing its doors in 1992. Now, the Balboa Performing Arts Theater Foundation is conducting a capital campaign to renovate this legendary icon and transform it into a 320-seat multi-use for the presentation of music, dance, theater, film and performing arts education programs. The Foundation is charged with facility design, raising construction funds, and eventually managing the theater's daily operations.
