    RSVP's for these events are required at least 2 days prior to the event, please respond via the links provided. These are free events for our Chabot Members, however, we do ask that you be considerate and change your RSVP if your plans change, so we don't turn other members away in the event that you cannot attend. 

    No outside food or drinks will be permitted in the theater, in order to retain the state of the venue.
