About Us

The Carmel Youth Center has a rich and colorful history, beginning with our founder—entertainer, philanthropist Bing Crosby.

The CYC Facility

The Carmel Youth Center is a deceptively large facility. We have a multipurpose room that seats 150 (350 standing). We have a beautiful lounge with a fully functioning snack bar/kitchen, a state-of-the-art movie theater (seats 43), a large game room with pool table, table tennis, shuffleboard table, arcade games, a fully operational recording studio and rehearsal space with a PA System, amps and instruments waiting for your band to book some rehearsal time. Drop in for tour today.

Your Event @ The CYC

The JRS Theater at the CYCWe have had the pleasure of hosting events such as Birthday Parties, Bar mitzvahs, Bat Mitzvahs, Reunions, Movie Premiers & Graduation Dances...and much more.

Affordable and flexible pricing ensures that your event comes in on budget. Use the entire facility, or just a single room. If you have only seen the youth center from the outside, please take a few minutes to drop in for a tour. You'll be surprised at how large the facility really is.

We would love the opportunity to work with you & help plan your special event.

The Jeffrey Raymond Sutton Theater

The JRS Theater at the CYCIn 2009 the CYC premiered the JRS Theater, a state of the art 40 seat movie theater which was made possible by donations in memory of former CYC supporter, volunteer, and media enthusiast Jeffrey Raymond Sutton.

The theater is a proud venue during the annual Carmel Art & Film Festival and also houses regular movie days for CYC members.
