Coronado's Art Scene
It’s not all about the beach in Coronado!
We are fortunate to have live theater, a film festival, art galleries, and a Public Art Walking Tour of 30 pieces located throughout the village and the Silver Strand.
The Coronado Playhouse is the longest running community theater in San Diego County. Located in the beautiful Coronado Community Center on Glorietta Bay, it provides cabaret style seating for 100 and also features a full bar. The Playhouse usually hosts seven productions each year.

Coronado School of the Arts (CoSA), which provides high school level pre-professional arts education, hosts a multitude of exhibits and events each year. The 570 seat Main Theater is augmented by an 80-seat Black Box theater. Click here for more information.
The Village Theatre opened in 1950 and received a complete renovation of its Art Décor interior in 2011. First run moviesare shown in its three theaters.
While you are waiting for your movie to begin, enjoy the amazing murals of San Diego and Coronado on the theater's walls.
