About the Guild Theater
The Guild Theater is a nonprofit theater managed by St. HOPE Academy, a nonprofit community development corporation whose mission is to revitalize inner-city communities through public education and economic development. Established in 1989 by NBA All-Star and Oak Park native Kevin Johnson, St. HOPE educates, trains and empowers citizens to change the landscaped of low-income areas, beginning with the Oak Park neighborhood in Sacramento, California.
The Guild Theater is the only remaining theater of the numerous early 20th century motion picture houses for which Oak Park was once known. Designed and financed by Joseph Lewis and completed in 1915, it was the largest of three theaters on 35th Street in Oak Park at that time. Originally called the Victor Theater, the building’s structure reflected the influence of the Moorish Revival on theaters of that era.
For many decades, the Guild Theater was a premier entertainment destination and in its earliest days played host to vaudeville shows. The theater eventually fell into a state of disrepair and remained vacant for many years. St. HOPE has updated and restored the Guild Theater in 2003 and currently showcases film, lectures and live performances.
The Guild Theater has been restored and renovated, but maintains its historic charm and is a perfect venue for corporate events, plays, concerts, trainings, movie screenings, weddings and more.
The venue has an open front lobby area with both a ticket counter and concession stand. The 200-seat theater has exposed brick interior walls showcasing contemporary art.
