The Irvine Bowl is an amphitheater in Laguna Beach, California.[1] It is also known as the Festival of the Arts Amphitheater because it has hosted the Pageant of the Masters associated with the Laguna Beach Festival of the Arts for over 60 years. Adjacent to the Bowl is the Moulton Theater, which is home to the Laguna Playhouse. The Bowl has a capacity of approximately 2,600 and was built in the 1940s. Portions of it were rebuilt in the 1990s following several mudslides. The Amphitheater is named in honor of James Irvine who donated the property in the Laguna Canyon to use for the pageant.[2]
