The Inventors Nest

Innovation in arts, entertainment, and technology

The Inventors Nest is the not for profit organization behind the Redwood Theatre. We founded our organization to save the theatre from being developed into a condo, and have dedicated our time and resources to building this 1914 theatre into an art, technology, and entertainment centre that will serve our community for another 100 yeaars!

Our Story

The Inventors Nest is an innovation hub for inventors from the fields of arts, entertainment, and technology. Because inventors are a differnt breed than just entrepreneurs, our organization focuses our resources on providing a nest for innovators to test and launch their products and innovations in a commercial setting where they can reach audiences, markets, and the public to bring their visions to the world.
