Theater 150

Theater 150 was constructed in an abandoned pool hall by Kim Maxwell-Brown and Dwier Brown in 1997 to offer Ventura County audiences an intimate theater experience that Kim calls “theater in your lap”. Theater 150 also offers acting, writing, and directing classes for all ages through The Conservatory at Theater 150.

Ojai Playwrights Conference

Ojai Playwrights Conference is one of the few developmental groups left that values the reading and workshop process as an important avenue through which playwrights can more fully realize their intentions with a play. Ours is a conference centered around playwrights and their new plays. We believe the theatre can be a vital and essential forum for the exchange of new and challenging ideas about the world in which we live. We seek out plays and playwrights who share this vision.

Ojai Film Festival

Ojai Film Festival, like the new millennium, was launched in 2000 with great vision and promise. Conceived as an independent film festival set in the enchanting town of Ojai - only 70 miles from Hollywood - the Festival has since grown into a world-class showcase nestled in the pristine mountains of Southern California.
