Stunning architecture and truly one of the best theater venues in LA. Most seats have a great view of the stage and orchestra and the whole theater has wonderful acoustics. No matter what you go see there, you'll be amazed.
Citysearch Editorial Review – Setting the stage for a classical-music renaissance in Downtown L.A., this state-of-the-art venue designed by famed architect Frank Gehry is a show-stopping stunner of curved stainless steel on the outside and sweeping hardwood paneling inside. The main auditorium is a wonder of aesthetics and acoustics: rippling Douglas fir ceilings create a sense of movement, while adding warmth and resonance to sound quality. The 2,265 seats are arranged in a terraced, "vineyard"-style design to further enhance the aural and visual experience. Along with the main hall, the five-story venue houses the BP Hall, a more intimate space for special events; and the REDCAT, a 250-seat theater and art gallery operated by CalArts. There's also a gift store and two dining options--Joachim Splichal's renowned Patina restaurant and the casual Concert Hall Cafe. Outside, two small amphitheaters host special performances, while landscaped gardens provide an oasis of natural beauty amid Bunker Hill's concrete jungle.
Stunning – Fabulous acoustics, excellent sight lines, every detail well thought out.
so close to being awesome – we saw the berlin philharmonic. our seats faced sir simon rattle which was very cool having that perspective of the stage. the building itself is very cool the lobby and the grounds are beautiful -- the one huge problem, the seats. Disneys greedy - stuck in more seats then would fit the place we were all squeezed together with no leg room. the seat I was lucky enough to have had this wood banister in front, eliminating 30% of the leg room I already didnt have. Getting to our seats, my stepmom was looking around the hall not noticing the metal decorative piece placed between the seats, losing her balance - almost tumbling down a few row. what were they thinking? The design is extremely poor, you have to get through a maze of hallways God forbid theres an emergency
