  • This is a cool old theater near the center of the town. Parking was pretty easy and the building was very cool.  more »
  • This is one of the old, beautifully preserved historic theatres. Perfectly located in vibrant downtown Santa Barbara with bars, restaraunts, coffee and shopping for before/after all performances...  more »
  • Over the decades I had attended various events at this historic location. This month was the first opportunity I had to visit since the 2008 remodel. Absolutely beautiful and comfortable as well...  more »
  • I've been to this iconic Santa Barbara theater many times. The restoration they have done brings it back to its Glory days. I have seen concerts and plays and ballets and have always been amazed at the exceptional decor of this iconic theater. Every time I walk in I harkened back to the old days of real theater. I think about the amount of people that have examined and walked the Halls, sat in the seats and seen wonderful performances. What a wonderful old theater and building. If you wish to see what a theater back in time really looked like you need to go to the Granada.
  • I would highly suggest not purchasing tickets in the balcony section starting with row M and up. The seats had no leg room, so if you are over 4'11 your legs have no room. My sister who is 6 feet tall and to seat sideways in order to prevent her knees from going into someone's head or back. I am 5'8 and my legs were pressed against the back of the seat in front of me. Other than that the theatre is very nice, the restrooms were clean and well stocked.
  • This is a very nice venue. I have enough history living here to remember is as a movie theatre and they have done a nice job with it. Adding the parking complex to the back is also a huge plus for it. If I have any complaints, it is the seating at the very top have no leg room. If you are a larger person, those seats are harder to sit in.
  • Performance was enjoyable. Inside the theature is well maintained. Good customer service, it was my first time and I was walked through. Seats were somewhat comfy. Box office was cheery. No pictures allowed because of copywrite. I was in and out. Don't know anybody and the atmosphere is something I am very distant from but I like the same entertainment. I was the poorest person in there.
  • Fantastic theater! Recently remodeled with beautiful results. The ceiling & lights around the boxes are pretty cool.
