The Yost Theater Reimagined


With a century’s long legacy as one of Orange County’s oldest and most versatile venues for live entertainment and special events, The Yost Theater just reopened after a million dollar renovation. Owned by The Chase Family, The Yost’s renovation is led by catering company 24 Carrots and event production firm N Effect; a collaboration that reintroduces the landmark location in the Santa Ana Historic East End District.

Currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Yost was established in 1913 as a movie palace and has since evolved as a cornerstone to Santa Ana’s downtown. The present-day iteration is intended to revive The Yost as an event space with a wide range of private and weekly public events, from concerts and live performances to upscale weddings, social fêtes, and corporate functions. With a respectful reverence for the building’s antiquity, the restoration efforts transformed its most recent gothic Spanish Colonial theme into a vibrant arena inspired by its original Art Deco scheme.

 The vibe recalls a bygone era at The Yost, utilizing its five rooms to accentuate the building’s versatility. Guests enter through the front patio featuring customizable poster holders and a historic box office booth. The theater, which is adorned with the original brick and dramatic curtains, holds up to 1,200 standing guests and boasts a built-in bar and two furnished green rooms located behind the stage. A private upstairs loft uses its accordion doors to invite guests into the mezzanine, an alluring area to meander and overlook the merriment below.

Leading the food and beverage programming is 24 Carrots’ renowned culinary team. For special private events, menus are tailored with gourmet catering offerings. 

It’s open for tours and accepting special event bookings. For more information, pricing and capabilities, and a schedule of weekly public events visit, call 800.717.1545.

The Yost is at 307 North Spurgeon Street in Santa Ana.
