From live events to the latest blockbusters, you’ve got choices.
You never know where the evening could take you. Start walking in downtown Oceanside and you could find yourself drawn in by the bright lights of a historic marquee, where the curtain is about to rise on a Broadway production revival. Or maybe the sound of music wafting on the breeze leads you to a beachside concert. Or perhaps you smell fresh-popped popcorn, and the next thing you know, you’re walking into the movies. Live comedy, local theater, film, concerts, ballet, and more all have a home in downtown O’side.
Every February, the curtains lift at the historic Sunshine Brooks Theater and fans of independent film are treated to a week of screenings and premiers at the Oceanside International Film Festival. Highlighting emerging voices in the cinematic space, OIFF includes shorts, features, and documentaries from around the globe, plus red carpet events and panel discussions with filmmakers, actors, writers, and other industry professionals.
