Where is the UC Theater, Berkeley? 

The UC Theatre Taube Family Music Hall, popularly known as the UC Theater, is on University Avenue in downtown Berkeley. It is close to the Berkeley Rep School of Theater and Berkeley Repertory Theater. The Downtown Berkeley BART Plaza and UC Berkeley’s Cresent Lawn are only a 5-minute walk from the theater.  

UC Theater was originally a movie theater from 1976 to 2001. In 2012, David Mayeri formed The Berkeley Music Group to renovate the theater and operate it as a live music venue. It reopened in 2016. The multi-tiered venue can host up to 1400, with available standing room and limited seating. All three tiers and the dance floor are ADA accessible, and the theater has a full-service bar/restaurant. 

How to reach UC Theater 

If you are driving down from San Francisco, take the I-80 East after crossing the Bay Bridge. Then, take the University Avenue exit and turn east towards the hills. You’ll find the UC theater at 2036 University Ave, between Milvia and Shattuck. It takes around three hours to drive from San Francisco to Downtown Berkeley.
