Additionally, the iconic, newly renovated UC Theatre is a premier destination for special events. Flexible floor configurations include: 1,400 capacity General admission, 1,000 capacity reception-style, 700 capacity theater-style and 400 capacity banquet-style seating. The venue’s three tiers and dance floor are ADA wheel chair accessible.

A community-minded music venue giving back…

The UC Theatre is operated by the Berkeley Music Group (BMG), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our Concert Career Pathways education program teaches young people the technical, creative and business aspects of concert and event promotion. Through hands-on workshops and paid internships we train the next generation of music industry professionals.

BMG is also dedicated to ensuring that The UC Theatre strengthens the Bay Area’s vibrant fabric of nonprofit arts and service organizations. We are building a collaborative network of community partnerships with existing education, performing arts, health and youth development nonprofits to assist them with their fundraising and outreach through events at The UC Theatre.
