Even Construction Can’t Stop the Lark Theater

“The excitement of returning to the Lark was so palpable the morning we first opened — everyone is a community here and when we come together there’s a real sense of belonging and enjoyment.”
Ellie Mednick, executive director at the Lark Theater 

Larkspur’s historic art deco Lark Theater is still undergoing construction, but some lucky guests got souvenir hard hats at the October 9 soft opening and got to see the popular Live at the Met in HD series on the big screen from the comfort of the newly refurbished theater seats. 

Construction will take a few more months, but in the meantime, patrons can see Metropolitan Opera performances (yes, it’s back!) live from New York at 9:55 a.m. on Saturdays and recordings at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays. Check the Lark’s website for the schedule; tickets are $30 for the live shows and $24 for the recorded.
