Description

From California Historical Landmarks
José Lobero opened the region's first legitimate theatre on this site on February 22, 1873. For many years the old theatre was the center of social life in Santa Barbara. A new Lobero Theatre, opened in 1924 on the same site, continues to serve the cultural interests of the area.

During a visit in August, 2017, an official State of California marker plaque was not found.
