Rental Information


Choosing the right venue is essential for a memorable and successful event.

It must offer convenience, up-to-date technology, and professional management, at a rate that fits your budget. The Grand Theatre Center for the Arts has all of the above. Plus, there is an intangible “wow” factor that comes with the Grand.

An Interesting Past, A Place For Today

The Grand Theatre opened in 1923 as a vaudeville hall at the center of downtown Tracy. The Grand was in its heyday in 1941 as a local movie theatre and was treated to an Art Deco makeover. The period-sculptured marquee is still in place today. A 20-year visionary, civic-community partnership created the culturally, enrichment-focused Grand Theatre Center for the Arts, which opened in 2007.

The Grand is owned and operated by the City of Tracy and managed by City staff who are experts in event and facility management. This municipal, interdisciplinary arts center is the only one of its kind in California offering professional and community fine arts programming through arts education, exhibition and  performances. All performance and classroom spaces are available for rent at very reasonable rates.

Facility Rental Pricing
