 If you are looking for arts and culture entertainment ideas, look no further than the attractions around Sausalito for some of the area’s best!

California Film Institute – One of the few nonprofit theaters in the country, the California Film Institute works toward promoting film as both an art form and an educational device. Through their year-round programming at the Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center, their annual Mill Valley Film Festival, and the CFI Education Program, the Institute offers a variety of films throughout the year that might not otherwise be available to Bay Area audiences.

Marin County Civic Center – Both a National and State Historic Landmark, the Marin Civic Center building is truly worth a trip to see. One of Frank Lloyd Wright’s last commissioned designs, the sprawling complex is a unique architectural feat and has attracted visitors from around the country for more than 40 years. With a large and well appointed set of event venues and exhibition spaces, the Marin Center is also home to many local and large scale events of all kinds.

Discover Art on Fourth – San Rafael’s arts community is largely clustered in spaces along Fourth Street downtown and invites visitors to experience the artists themselves at work in their studios through a series of events. Arts After Hours and other events attract new visitors to the area for a visual feast before heading out to the neighboring restaurants to fulfill other cravings.

Mountain Play – Since 1913, the Mountain Play Association has been bringing Bay Area residents an annual theater experience like no other. Set in the memorable and scenic theater inside Mt. Tamalpais State Park, the Mountain Play brings visitors into a unique outdoor setting for classic theatrical features. Bring your own picnic lunch or dinner and enjoy one of the most unique attractions anywhere in the world!

Falkirk Cultural Center – A National Landmark building, this Queen-Anne Victorian home is a fixture in the community of San Rafael and was purchased by the city in 1974. Named Falkirk by its original owner, the building is home to art galleries and seasonal events and is open to the general public without an admission fee.

Marin Symphony – Billed as “fresh local music”, the Marin Symphony brings classical music aficionados the programming that they are craving. The acclaimed symphony puts on programs that range from the classic and staid to the avant garde and experimental and brings something new and fresh to the world of classical music. With a season spanning October to May and six separate concert selections, there are a wide variety of performances offered each year.
