The Catalina Casino, A Catalina Island Icon
The Catalina Casino has been the focal point of Santa Catalina Island entertainment and culture since it opened over eighty years ago on May 29, 1929. For nearly three generations, the Catalina Casino has been the venue of choice for great entertainers, live theater productions, and first-run motion pictures.
Dominating the Avalon landscape from its regal perch along the harbor, the Casino exemplifies the style and romance of Catalina Island. Restored to its original condition, the Art Deco, circular icon is a stunning reminder of Catalina’s glorious past.
The Catalina Casino features a movie theatre, on the lower level, that offers first-run movies every night. Explore the rich history of the Catalina Casino, take our Casino Walking Tour or Behind the Scenes Casino Tour. Tours are available daily.
The Casino hosts most of Catalina’s major indoor events, including the annual New Year’s Eve Celebration and the Catalina Island Jazz Festival. The Catalina Casino Ballroom is available year round for private and corporate events. Visit our meeting and group section or wedding section for more details.
