The Nevada Theatre

The Nevada Theatre is California’s oldest original-use theater. It is located downtown in the picturesque gold mining town of Nevada City. The building, California Historic Landmark No. 863, has seen thousands of presentations over its near-150 year history including performances from Mark Twain and Emma Nevada to Mötley Crüe and The Second City comedy troupe. Today it is a vital part of the community and is used for live theatre, movies, and special events.
