Long Description:
The San Benito Stage Company was founded in 1999, dedicated to providing local live theater performance. The Granada theater been in continuous operation as a movie theater for decades, but fell on hard times when a spiffy new multiplex opened nearby. When the Granada finally gave up showing films, it was easy to see that the space should be used for the stage, but it wasn't so easy to work out the details. Fortunately for the community of Hollister, the owners came to agree. Now, San Benito Stage puts on at least five plays a year in the auditorium. The opulent historic decorations are intact inside, and the seating and facilities have been updated.
