  • Nice environment. The theater is a great platform. Sound system is perfect. Blue sky with stars grabbed the attention of my 4 years old. We have been organizing Art and Language Festival here for the last couple years. Friendly and supportive staff. Very convenient commute, right by the highway. Thank you.
  • I like this place. Old fashion theater. With some modern attachments. Everything is there. Not the top notch. But is there. ... some problems with parking spaces... definitely...
  • Relatively large venue for concerts and events. Drinks and simple cocktails available for purchase. The sound was bot the best.
  • Mariachi concert was amazing. The venue was cozy but some seats need to be fixed. There was a wire pocking my leg, luckily there were other seats I was able to move to.
  • At the resent concert on March 8, 2019 there were not enough security and total lack of organization. We paid for the front row seats, and that meant nothing because a bunch of people from the back left their seats and stood in front of us by the stage blocking everyone’s view for the duration of the concert. Security tried to send them back to their assigned seats, but quickly gave up. All we could see were backs of people by the stage. Really a shame because the concert was great, but those 50-75 people ruined it for thousand others and security did nothing about it. Attached is the view from my (quite expensive) front seat. Will not come back.
