All the schools have a theater.
School facilities are frequently rented to community groups like Chinese school and so forth. Maybe their theater. Not sure, probably not the more sophisticated ones like the high schools, but the Elementary schools have nice ones.
Lucy Stern, including - weather permitting - I think that space they have by the boy scout house is pretty cool.
Not to mention, all the churches, and synagogues. Everyone has a venue for family-friendly entertainment.

In my neighborhood, Castilleja has an auditorium. Paly and Gunn both have them, and Gunn has a theatre as well. First Presbyterian Church has a nice auditorium, too, and is very open to other groups renting it out.
