Since beginning their full time lease of the GST in November, Monterey Church has worked tirelessly to keep the building open to the public as a performing arts venue. They have worked hand in hand with the City of Monterey Planning Commission and have made numerous improvements to the building to bring it up to commercial code after years of neglect. Additionally, they have stated their intentions to maintain and continue to restore the historical artwork and architecture of the building.

For the first time in over a year, the Mighty Wurlitzer was serviced and used for the local EG Entertainment Conference, in which the Discovery Channel premiered their new HD movie “Life,” live at the GST. Ensemble Monterey continues to perform on stage on a quarterly basis, and in the coming months several film festivals and live musical performances will be held in the theatre.

Happily, the Golden State Theatre remains the crown jewel of downtown Monterey, leaving guests and performers still raving about its historical beauty and atmosphere.
