Performance Space Rentals
The Sunset Center is located near the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea, only three blocks from Ocean Avenue. Our historic theater is an ideal venue for a variety of live performances. From piano recitals, orchestral concerts and operas to lectures, comedy, rock-n-roll, ballet and full-sized theatrical productions—all of this, and more, has graced our beautiful stage.
You can easily plan a production for the optimal enjoyment of your audience with the theater’s complete lighting and sound systems, a state-of-the-art acoustical enhancement program (L.A.R.E.S), professional and experienced stage crew, extraordinary backstage amenities, and a full-service box office. The auditorium includes 718 seats, including 48 seats that are permanently attached to a seat wagon that rolls under the main seating area for storage (to allow use of the orchestra pit or thrust stage).

Beyond live performance, the Sunset Center Theater stage also makes a dynamic impression on your guests and clients at lectures, annual meetings, commencements, weddings, film screenings, new product introductions, fundraising or special event dinners and VIP receptions.
