The theater is home to Children’s Musical Theater San Jose and Lyric Theater. Children’s Musical Theater San Jose is the nation’s largest musical theater and training program for youth of its kind. Lyric Theatre has been performing operettas and musicals in San Jose since 1972.

Built in 1936, the Montgomery Theater retains its historic charm and offers audiences an intimate experience for every performance. With an elegant appearance and contemporary upgrades, it hosts a variety of local cultural and performing arts organizations, as well as corporate meetings and private events.

The theater shares a brand new elevator with the San Jose Civic (the venue next door which is connected directly to the Montgomery Theater), allowing the balcony access to be even more convenient for guests.

The beautiful courtyard in front of the building, just off the spacious lobby entry way with built in concessions booth, makes for a perfect outdoor entertaining location, registration or cocktail reception prior to event.

The Montgomery Theater is located across the street from the Convention Center, making transportation and parking easy with a Light Rail stop at the theater entrance and several pay parking lots across the street.

  • This place is perfect for what it does. Community arts thrive here and the performances are great! Well Done Montgomery Theater:-)  more »
  • The theater has the best seating and it was really comfortable to watch the shows because of the arrangements and seating  more »
  • A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder: wonderful and entertaining production performed by talented, budding actors. Everyone did a great job, but the standouts were the two male, lead performers and the two, lovely, female stars. Don't miss this great show in the terrific Montgomery Theater venue!
  • Went to see Super Troopers an Abba tribute band here. Accoustics could have been better
