In June of 2019…
Smalltown Society, in partnership with First Presbyterian Church of Hayward, purchased the historic Chabot Theater in Castro Valley CA, in an effort to preserve and build upon its historic legacy, continuing to make it a community asset for years to come.
The effort began when the leadership of Smalltown first discovered that the theater was for sale. In an effort to save the theater from potentially being leveled or utilized for alternate purposes, a team of local residents was formed and funds secured to purchase the theater and launch a new business that began operations on June 4, 2019. All profit from the business will be reinvested into local art and advocacy projects.
Smalltown Society will operate The Chabot as a community “first-run” cinema house, while implementing exciting new programs and events, establishing the theater as a cultural hub in Castro Valley.
