Cohan Pacific Theater
A magnificent performing arts center is the result of a partnership and spirit of cooperation between California Polytechnic State University, the City of San Luis Obispo and the Foundation for the Performing Arts Center. The vision to build a state-of-the-art performing arts center to serve the greater San Luis Obispo community came into focus in November, 1986. It was believed that the people of our area and visitors to our community deserved a special facility devoted to the enrichment of lives through the arts and cultural activities. During the course of the center’s planning, it was decided to incorporate the existing 497-seat Cal Poly Theatre and to call the entire complex the Performing Arts Center San Luis Obispo. The new facility, featuring a concert hall with 1,282 seats, the pavilion – a multi-purpose venue, and a 170-seat recital hall, was named the Christopher Cohan Center.
Showcasing the very best of Independent, Foreign, Art House, and Mainstream Cinema.
