I attended an Isley Brothers concert here April 14th. I always attempt to see the seating map before I go to a concert venue and I had already figured out it would be a small space. You really have to love the performer playing there, which I did. The seats were decent but somewhat tight and there were no cup... More

Traffic is horrible getting into the venue. Plan at least 45 mins just to get from feeder access road into the parking garage. There were no uniformed police officers to direct traffic and it was a nightmare just trying to go one block from freeway to enter onto the property. Once on the property, it was still horrendous and they... More

Went to see Air Supply here. Never been to the venue before but thought it was very good. Parking was easy, you can either park at the venue for $10 or just outside. Was a queue getting out but was to be expected. They sell limited food inside but at a decent price such as hotdogs, popcorn and nachos, also... More

I read really bad reviews about the Arena Theater so had no real expectations. We had excellent seats - front row in front of the orchestra pit area. You could tell the age by the decor of the place, but the theater is small and intimate and the stage is in the round and revolves - so not a bad... More

Saw Loretta Lynn there. Small venue so all the seats were pretty good. Most of the other reviews pretty much covered it. Old, worn, tight, uncomfortable seats. Very casual. The part that irritated me the most was the # of people going up near the stage to take selfies! Those should be banned...I think they're disrespectful to the performers! For... More

Rotating stage is a great way to see the artists. You get a great up close and personal experience. Security to enter is great. Parking in garage $10 for this event which I felt was slightly higher.

My husband and I have seen quite a few artists perform here, it is usually a fantastic evening out! The parking is reasonable and venue has excellent acoustics. It has a much more intimate feeling than the oversized arenas with poor sound systems. Every seat is a great seat, the arena is small enough to see well even from the... More

Saw Loretta Lynne in concert and loved the show. The sound was good and even being 5 rows from the back I had a good view of the stage and Loretta. It was very clean and comfortable. I haven't been in an arena setting (in the round) in ages and had forgotten how much fun and how close to the... More

We saw Loretta Lynn perform last week at the Arena with some members of her family and her band and the show was wonderful. Every seat in the theater is good since the theater is small. Stage rotates constantly in this rounded seating theater. Food is limited to hot dogs, popcorn and nachos so I would recommend you have dinner... More

Good theater for small scale music concerts. The center podium is revolving and hence makes for a very good viewing. Had a great experience in two concerts attended.
