Hearst Greek Theatre

Hearst Greek Theatre (1903) is a 6,500-seat amphitheater set into the hills. The first campus structure designed by campus architect John Galen Howard, the theater was a gift from the late newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst. Berkeley's Greek Theatre uses the ancient amphitheater at Epidaurus, Greece, as a model, but also includes Roman elements.
