Open Console: No open console in December because of other theatre committments.

    January's open console will be Saturday, 5 January 2019 from 9AM to 11AM.  
Enter by the Sola Street side door (has stairs leading down to a green double door).  The door will be blocked open. 

    Please do not enter the small back door of the theatre, which has a single step leading up. 
This door may be opened by the stage crew for their use.  It leads to the backstage, and we are not permitted in that area.

    Open Consoles are free and open to the public.  Bring you kids, friends, and neighbors.  Come play the organ. listen, take pictures, ask questions, see the chambers, and meet new friends.  Enjoy yourselves.


    The best parking is at the City lot on Chapala Street, located about 1/2 block south of the theatre.

    We had a problem with a recent open console, which was greatly attended (thanks to a wonderful Santa Barbara News Press article).  Unfortunately, guests wandered outside the area of the organ console, principally backstage, the dressing rooms, the lobby, and the balcony.  This intrusion strained our relationship with the theatre.  If you attend the open console, please stay near the area of the organ console and theatre seats, or accompany an SBTOS member for a chamber tour.

    The Arlington Theatre is located at 1317 State Street between Victoria and Sola streets

    Our newest CD: Dancing in the Dark, as well as "I Remember You" and our Christmas CD "Christmas at the Arlington" with Scott Foppiano will be available then also.  We can also play a selection or two on the organ.
