Brooks Theater

Oceanside, CA

A 1930s-era movie house turned live performance venue, the Brooks sits at the heart of Oceanside’s Cultural District. Using the alibi of deferred maintenance, strategic improvements ensure the theater’s long-term sustainability. Phase one reorganizes interior spaces to encourage lingering in a redesigned front lobby and a new connection to an updated studio theater. Phase two wraps the building in an acoustic facade that folds down to create an outdoor stage, activating the surrounding urban context.
