For the past 30 years, the 125-seat Letters & Arts lecture hall (LA-6) has housed most of the college theatre arts and musical productions, guest performances and special events. The design of the new 18,638 square-foot performing arts facility includes a flexible Black-Box Theater with seating for a hundred, while another feature of the project is to house the Oxnard College Television Studio pre-production and post-production facilities. The television studio is now housed in the Learning Resources Center, which is also is scheduled for a major reconstruction in the next few years.
In 2006, the Community College Facility Coalition presented Oxnard College with a state design phase award for the performing arts classroom and auditorium. The Irvine-based architectural firm of MVE Institutional, Inc. designed the structure for Oxnard College and the Ventura County Community College District. The construction project will be funded with $13.7 million from Bond Measure S and state funding estimated at $7.5 million.
