  • 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. I think it was 2 hours for free w/ validation and then some ~$10 every 30 minutes or so. We printed our tickets at home instead of choosing well call and we're able to walk right in. 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!😊
