In downtown Oceanside.

From live events to the latest blockbusters, you’ve got choices.

Go for a stroll, take in a show.

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.
