  • I had a great time attending the SOUTH BAY CHAMPIONSHIPS... The theatre is small but has enough space to be comfortable walking around between seats and hallways... It's very clean... Including restrooms... Event parking is paid indoor parking don't park at mall area you might get towed...
  • Wonderful smaller theater that has a wide array of performances. Parking is easy, access is good, and the venue is very comfortable. Highly recommend checking out the current lineup to see what may be there that you would be interested in.
