MJC alumnus and Broadway legend Carol Channing and movie star Jeremy Renner were on hand Saturday August 23, 2008 to celebrate the opening of Modesto Junior College's expanded auditorium complex which include the new radio and TV studios.
Now known as the Performing and Media Arts Center, the auditorium complex underwent a $33 million expansion and renovation. The 54,000-square-foot facility features an overhauled 820-seat main auditorium and a 74-seat little theater.
