BERKELEY — The historic, shuttered Oaks Theatre building on upper Solano Avenue is listed for sale at $4.25 million, and the owner would like to see it reemerge as a theater and arts venue. The 21,575-square-foot building, at 1861-1877 Solano Ave., includes an approximately 1,000-seat-capacity movie theater with balcony, and five retail spaces below five offices, according to a prospectus from local brokerage Gordon Commercial Real Estate Services. A sign over the ticket office visible through the front glass door lists the movie titles “War of the Roses,” “Black Dahlia,” “Driving Miss Daisy” and “Steel Magnolias.”.

Allowable uses at the theater would include a quick-serve restaurant with beer and wine, according to the listing.

In a region that prides itself on disrupting the status quo, Cellista is celebrating the legacy of the original disrupters. With the Great War still bogged down in the trenches on the Western front, the polymathic savant Jean Cocteau premiered his ballet “Parade” in Paris on May 17, 1917. The production featured music by Erik Satie, Pablo Picasso-designed costumes and sets, and Léonide Massine’s choreography for Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes. It was the work for which Guillaume Apollinaire, writing in the program notes, coined the term “surrealism.” Talk about a dream team.
With “Finding San Jose,” Cellista (aka cellist, composer, director and performance artist Freya Seeburger) has crafted what she calls a “multidisciplinary stage poem” that pays tribute to Cocteau’s seminal production, An initial version of the work premiered last October to a sold-out audience in San Francisco, and an expanded version gets its San Jose premiere at Japantown’s Akiyama Wellness Center, where it opens a three-night run May 18, The shows include a screening of Brian Favorite’s short documentary “Cellista” and an opening set by ballet flats with elastic band recently formed San Francisco roots rock band the Blind Bandits..
