Owner description: Bali night out. With USD 17 watch magical culture theater show, LIGHTS OF FAITH. A story of traditional friendship crushed in a modern culture. It's fun, hilarious & educating. There are at least six story morals in one hour performance. Daily show 8 PM except Wednesday (no show on Wednesday). See the show and feel the magic of Bali in every story.

“A great laugh, a special experience”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

If you are expecting a nice, professional show, you will be disappointed. The show is, however, amazing if you are not expecting too much. I had no idea what to expect and I loved it!

First of all, don't bother getting the VIP ticket. A regular ticket will cost 120,000 Rp. and allows you to sit anywhere except on the first row. The VIP tickets allows you to sit on the first row, but will cost you 150,000 Rp. If there are not many people, its not worth the extra money. I'd say in any case its not necessary, since the show can bee seen well from anywhere in this tiny theater.

The show is a combination of traditional dance (really nice!), acting (horrible, which made it fun in my opinion), and illusion. Mainly the illusions made it fun. I really like 'magic', but some of the tricks seemed really obvious, really amaturistic. However, all the time the main character knew most of the people in the audience would be thinking the same thing, making a twist and the tricks sometimes really blew my mind. But then again, I'm a sucker for magic tricks, haha.

Furthermore, at one point they needed a volunteer, so I raised my hand, making the experience even more fun. Just don't expect the most professional show ever and you will definately have a great time. It's just 1 hour, just go!

“extra fees?”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We paid the price on the menu for food and admission, only to be visited during the movie by staff wanting Rp 5000 more, not sure why except that we had not paid enough. Very annoying during the movie however paid up to avoid a scene and to avoid annoying other movie goers which I think was the point......

I believe you are referring to other place
as we are not a cinema and we don't sell food.

“BALINESE TRADITIONAL DANCES”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

To get there from jalan kartika plaza you walk about 150 meters from Kuta Square, It is on the left hand side. it a 2 storey building and the theater is on the 2nd floor. They have 2 shows a day at 5pm and 8 pm. On wednesday it is closed.

Ticket price is USD 11 per person. It is an hour show with free sitting. it can accomodate about 100 people.

It is actually bali traditional dances with a bit of magic added to it. To tell you the truth i dont know what the story line is about. The sound system is something to be improved. You dont feel the effect.

Nothing so special and spectacular about this place.

“Bali Kuta Theater - Magic, Theater, Culture (3 in 1)”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

While searching for what to do for the first day t we came across this interesting program. Reading the reviews here in TA and looking up its website, sound very interesting, so we bought tickets for the show.
The show was interesting, a combination of magic, theater and Balinese cultural. This show is one hour long and it is at night only. The one drawback is that access to its entrance was rather dark and need to make it better. This show certainly provide a different way to spend the evening in Bali, especially if staying in Kuta. It is hope they will continue to refresh their show periodically to attract the crowd.
