Beautiful structure and not so difficult to find. unfortunately they don't have their own parking structure or lot but it is located right next door to a Ralph's grocery store which has an attached parking lot and parking structure.

All of the staff were very professional and helpful when dealing with the attending guests. 5 stars for service * Our seats were in the 3rd price tier and still had a reasonably good view. I would definitely come back here but definitely not on a Sunday, weekday evening shows are more to my preference.
Love this theater. Saw several plays in a past and ticket prices were reasonable. I wish I would meet Mr. Geffen, and having kind of historically geographically similar background, I wish he would adopt me!😊
