Welcome to the Golden Chain Theatres online information center. We are located in the beautiful High Sierra foothills in Eastern Madera County at the end of the Golden Chain Highway, State Route 49.


Nestled in the quiet little town of Oakhurst on your way to Yosemite National Park, you’ll find yourself stepping back in time to the days of the old mining camps and San Francisco theatres...!


During our Summer Season we are proud to feature true old “melodrama” where you boo and hiss the evil villain and cheer and sigh for the heroine. You are part of the show! Melodramas are guaranteed to be great FAMILY entertainment at a fraction of the cost of a Hollywood motion picture.


We also offer historical plays, dramas, and musicals throughout our season.


Don’t settle for the standard Valentine’s dinner.

Try something new and exciting!
