  • We saw Dream Theater here and it was a great intimate venue. Acoustics were fantastic and drinks were good too.

  • Another good visit to the Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum. Either take the elevator or store downstairs to the various separate galleries. Admission is free, although donations are greatly...

  • This place is really cool! It was my first time there and I saw Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden. He was amazing! The theater is really cool inside. They did a great job with acoustics too. We watched a video during the show and the sound was amazing. It's easy to get in and out of and the staff was friendly and helpful. I will def check out more goings on there.
  • Great arts center with a wonderful museum/exhibit hall, 4 theatres with some amazing touring shows and impressive local productions, and an absolutely lovely arts store stocked with a nice variety of local art including ceramics, paintings, photography, jewelry, including holiday art - whimsical, serene, and thought-provoking. Highly recommend this for local gifts!
