About the Greek Theatre
Opened in 1930, the Greek Theatre’s name comes from its design which was inspired by the amphitheaters of Ancient Greece. But having a novel design is only one reason to visit the Theatre. The iconic venue, which seats just under 6,000 guests, has won the award for “Best Small Outdoor Venue” 7 of the last 8 years.
