Sight + Sound brings you to the very edges of cinematic programming. With spaces to zen out Tinseltown-style, we’re heightening every olfactory, tactile, optical, and auditory point of contact. Even tastebuds will be rewarded with themed drinks and curated bites between film segments covering narrative, docs, foreign films, experimental and student shorts. Come early and stay late for the afterparties.
Located an hour north of Los Angeles, Oxnard's seaside location, friendly accommodations, white sandy beaches, downtown attractions, award-winning festivals, and the Channel Islands National Park make this a great place to visit. Did we mention we have tacos? Like really good tacos.
For film buffs, we have history! About a century ago, Hollywood cinematographers and location scouts were attracted by the beauty of Oxnard's beaches. In fact, it was in 1921 that Paramount Studios found Oxnard's sprawling coastline to be the perfect stand-in for the Egyptian desert. One of the most notable motion pictures of its time, Rudolph Valentino's The Sheik, was filmed here. Other Hollywood studios and stars were soon to follow. Clark Gable bought a home in Oxnard. Charlie Chaplin headed to Oxnard when he needed a respite from his busy schedule. Most notably, John Wayne made fishing his sport while vacationing in Oxnard.
