Description

The Monte Rio Theater & Extravaganza, which opened in the 1940s, sits on a stunning 1.3-acre property adjacent to the Russian River in downtown Monte Rio, a popular destination nicknamed “Vacation Wonderland.” In addition to the theater itself, housed in a historic World War II Quonset hut, the complex hosts an artisan community including a jewelry designer, a wood sculpturist, and a scenery designer and builder who does work for the San Francisco Opera and Google. The property also boasts a massive lawn that overlooks the Russian River and its adjacent beach, where various events are held, including the annual Monte Rio Theater Square Dance and several live music concerts throughout the spring, summer, and fall.
