Nothing makes a home quite like a little bit of history!
The legendary Lobero Theatre is hosting a garage sale featuring a multitude of items from the Lobero warehouse such as a pre-1920s steamer trunk, tour-worthy road cases, amplifiers and Lobero auditorium seats. These items and many more will be available for purchase until November 15. In preparation for Lobero Theatre’s reopening in December, these items will be a way for local Santa Barbara residents and Lobero Theatre enthusiasts to take a bit of Santa Barbara history home with them.
Beginning in June, Lobero Theatre began preservation work after three years of fundraising and planning through the Encore: Lobero campaign. The theatre’s preservation will include new seats, interior painting, ADA compliance upgrades and much more. The $7 million preservation campaign is led by Lobero Theatre Foundation‘s board of directors which preserves and maintains the historic theatre and hopes to continue Lobero’s community presence in Santa Barbara. First opened in 1973 and rebuilt in 1924, Lobero Theatre is an integrate part of the Santa Barbara community, is known as California’s oldest operating theatre, and is a city and state landmark where inspiring artists like Clark Gable, Igor Stravinsky, Ray Brown, Debbie Reynolds and Patrick Stewart have performed.
Donations for the preservation of Santa Barbara’s historic legendary Lobero Theatre (33 E Canon Perdido St.) can be made here. Purchases made at the garage sale are not considered a donation to Encore: Lobero. For more information on the theatre, click here.
