The Arts in Fairfax

Murals and Mosaics
Take a stroll around town. Discover the murals painted on the sides of buildings, like the one on the side of the building at Mono Avenue & Bolinas Road, or “The Seeds of Peace” mural painted on the side of the old Good Earth building on Sir Francis Drake Blvd. Just next to the mural on Bolinas road you will find the Repack Mountain Biking Mosaic Bench. Have a seat, rest your legs!
Film & Theater
Fairfax 6 Theatre – Fairfax is one of the few West Marin towns that has a movie theater. Built originally in the Art Deco style, and showing first run features, the theatre boasts some impressive firsts: the first modern multiplex theater in the United States powered by solar generated electricity, and Marin County’s first all digital projection movie theater. Fairfax 6 is also home to the Fairfax Documentary Festival every spring.
Fairfax Theatre Company – Every summer, usually from June through July, the Fairfax Theatre Company puts on an original play over several weekends at the Fairfax Pavilion. Headed by Sam Parry, the theater group involves adults and children in putting together a great performance event.
