Berkeley City Councilmember Laurie Capitelli is working with several community arts groups to develop a plan to re-open the Oaks Theater as a year-round multi-use venue hosting live theater, musical theater, opera, dance, films and special events.
1. Establish a vibrant cultural arts center in North Berkeley
2. Maintain the Oaks' use as a historic theater
3. Create a home to arts groups looking for permanent performance space
4. Provide high quality arts programming to the local community
5. Energize the Solano Ave. commercial district with more activity and patrons
Community input is valuable to this effort, and we appreciate your participation in this short survey.
