The final day of the THS 2012 Conclave/Theatre Tour was the ‘afterglow’ to the Rheem Theatre in Moraga, Orinda Theatre in Orinda, El Campanil Theatre in Antioch, California Theatre in Pittsburg, Sebastiani Theatre in Sonoma, and Empress Theatre in Vallejo.

The theatres ranged from a fully functioning art house to a theatre in the midst of renovation.  We heard the bell ring at the El Campanil Theatre, had lunch at the California Theatre, and rounded out the day with complimentary local wine at the Empress Theatre.

This concludes another THS Conclave/Theatre Tour.  Join us in 2013 to see theatres in and aroung  Schenectady, New York!  Watch this blog and the THS publications for details.



  1. Wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing all your photos including those interiors!

  2. Truly an amazing Conclave – through the efforts of THS VP for Conclaves MIKE HAUSER and local Director GARY PARKS. Mike truly picked up the gauntlet for the late Dr Tom DuBuque to create a fitting tribute to the man.
