Non-sports events held at the Stockton Arena and Bob Hope Theatre, 2009

A story by David Siders in today’s Record notes that in 2009 Stockton Arena lost $2 million, while the Bob Hope Theatre lost $298,808. As part of the reporting for the story I went through IFG’s online calendar and created a list of non-sports events held at each venue during the year.

Here’s how the list breaks down.

A total of 43 non sporting events were held at the arena in 2009, including 11 nights of family entertainment;  11 seminars, expos or meetings; nine comedy shows held in either the arena’s Comcast Club or King’s Room; four concerts, each featuring Latin performers; four high school graduations; three private events; and one concert in the King’s Room featuring the local band Suicide Shift.

The Hope, meanwhile, hosted 35 events in 2009, according to the online calendar, including 11 films presented by the Friends of the Fox, a nonprofit organization that supports the theater. The Hope also hosted 10 concerts, seven nights of family entertainment, six comedy shows and the opening of the San Joaquin International Film Festival.

The full list of events by date appears below. (Note: I do not have attendance figures.)
