Berkeley Community Theater Discography

This is a discography of albums recorded at Berkeley Community Theater.

The Berkeley Community Theater facing Allston Way on the Berkeley High School Campus was designed in 1938 but not opened until 1950. It forms, with the Florence Schwimley Little Theater, a shop and a group of science buildings, one of the few planned groups of Art Deco style buildings in the Bay Area. The building was used on occasion for concerts and musicals up until the early 1970's. At this time it became more regularly used as a rock venue.
