Cascade Theatre

1731 Market Street

 About Us:

The Cascade Theatre was constructed in downtown Redding in 1935 as a 1,348-seat movie palace and vaudeville stage. One of the few theatres built during the heart of the depression, the Cascade Theatre was a magnificent example of art deco architecture in California, complete with gold and silver gilded walls, period chandeliers, ornate plasterwork, a grand neon facade and marquee and beautiful murals. But, like many downtown theatres of its era, the Cascade struggled to survive during the 1990s with the rise of shopping mall-based multiplex cinemas. In 1997, the Cascade ceased operating and its doors were boarded.

Restoration of the Cascade Theatre was completed on August 14, 2004 and the theatre was reopened as a regional non-profit performing arts center. The restoration was carried out in a way that honored the heritage of the building and was consistent with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties while providing the functionality of a modern professional performing arts facility – complete with state-of-the-art sound, lighting and theatre technology. The Cascade Theatre is now capable of hosting a wide range of arts and cultural events, including theater, concerts, dance and film presentations.

Saw Wilco here. It would have been amazing but the chairs make it hard to actually “get into” that type of concert at a venue like this. Other shows I’ve seen here have been great though.

Class entertainment experience..They get the people that Redding should be grateful for...Our only real venue for consistent quality... Redding will not attract current people..Most old school top talented folks..They do a good job..Seats to close together...Old refurbished theater...They get jazz people sometimes..Our only option..Bethel and convention ctr...Not revelent...

Great venue for a show. My son and I saw Weird Al here. So much fun, and the theatre was clean, beautiful, and just plain nice.
