History

In September of 2017, Guggenheim Entertainment leveraged three decades of success as a theatrical production company to renovate, rebrand, and revitalize what was Camera 3 Cinemas in Downtown San Jose. GE led the the redevelopment of the venue reopening the venue as 3Below Theaters in January 2018 thus integrating Guggenheim Entertainment’s award-winning programs and those of partners Cinequest, ComedySportz, and San Jose Playhouse.

A dynamic entertainment destination, 3Below Theaters & Café serves as another jewel in San Jose’s crown for accessible, quality “third place” experiences. By creating a space that is inviting, intriguing, and includes a myriad of programs, GE invigorates this Downtown San Jose gem and gives visitors a unique experience from the moment they walk into the facility. When guests exit the three fully themed theaters and head into the creatively-themed lobby, they are greeted by caring and capable staff and find themselves always impressed by the commitment to ensure quality customer service for every aspect of the venue.

The 3Below renovations were designed by architect Kip Coleman, 3Below’s creative team (led by Scott Evan Guggenheim and Shannon Guggenheim, Co-Creative Directors) and General Contractor Tom Anthony, of AR Construction, in collaboration with Jack NyBlom of Camera 3 Entertainment and Kathleen Powell of Cinequest. Renovation funds were provided by the City of San Jose on behalf of Cinequest, as well as family and friends of Guggenheim Entertainment and ComedySportz San Jose.
