Seating in the Cushing Memorial Amphitheater consists of 3,750 stone seats and is primarily general admission, meaning it is first-come, first-served. Built by the Works Project Administration (WPA) and the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) from 1936 to 1940, these seats are mined from Mount Tamalpais. While historically impressive, sitting on rocks and dirt can be uneven. For added comfort, stadium seats (Cushions with a Back and No Legs) are available for rent or purchase starting at $10. Blankets, towels, and cushions are permitted, but chairs with legs are prohibited. If you bring a picnic, be mindful of the foot space behind you as it is the aisle for the row above.
