Uncomfortable – We attented a musical event in the theater. We arrived about 20 minutes before the show and there was NOWHERE TO PARK. The lot was full, and there was no optional Valet service. We circled the residential neighborhood for a parking place and ended up parking several blocks away next to a dark city park. Had a lot of anxiety about our car. Inside the theater the theater the seats are old and not comfortable. There is not neck and upper back support. I was actually surprised about the time warp state the theater is. It is old, musty, and has a nasty old bathroom. This place is in desperate need of some updates necessary for the comfort of its guests. I would not return.
Too small for big events – We went to see Melissa Etheridge there and it was a mess. There was equiptment surrounding the old theater that really was not designed for filming and all the required lights and cameras. Cound not find entrance at first. The parking is A MESS. The valets were all over and the line was hideous. We had to go down to CRENSHAW to turn into neighborhood, then met upset residents adjacent to theater who sat on their lawns with crying toddles and upet dogs. There is no where to park, and the neighbors are worn out from the disturbance. AND to top it off...the neighborhood is plagued by vandalism and gang problems. BE CAREFUL. Pass on this one
Evening with Class – I saw Yolanda Adams perform here.
Get there early so you don't trip with the parking.
Intimate setting with good sound and lighting.
