Visit Balboa Theatre
San Diego, United States
Located in the swanky Gaslamp District of downtown San Diego, this vaudeville theater elegantly stands as a historical figure. Originally built in 1924, it served as state-of-the-art movie palace, a Latin cinema, and a US Navy office space. It eventually fell to disrepair and was almost demolished but it was saved and majorly restored in 2002. It now hosts performances 115 days a year and has received numerous special awards.
Why is it bucket list worthy?
The theater is a testament to San Diego’s Latin history.
