OH San Diego Point Loma Hub

The OH! San Diego Point Loma Hub is located at Arts District Liberty Station, San Diego’s largest Arts & Cultural District is located in the historic buildings of the former Naval Training Center, where from 1923 to 1997, nearly two million young men—and eventually women—were trained. The Art’s District’s restored 45 buildings are home to nearly 145 tenants including museums, galleries, artist studios, dance companies and non-profit organizations that showcase San Diego’s creative community. The principal influence on the design of the original structures was architect Bertram G. Goodhue, who designed many buildings for the military, in addition to his work in Balboa Park for the 1915 exposition. Goodhue created a simplified Spanish Colonial Revival style with Pueblo influences that was very plain and unadorned and which was realized throughout NTC by the Navy Public Works Office. Buildings included in the guided tour include those listed below, among others.

This distinctive building with a pointed cupola above the vestibule lobby, is set back from the street within gardens and palm groves.

Navy recruits saw training films here and enjoyed the latest Hollywood offerings, along with Point Loma residents. Bob Hope and other celebrities did radio broadcasts from its stage. It is fitting that the historic Art Deco building has been rehabilitated to serve as a modern cinema, complete with a new glass-enclosed cafe/ bar.
