“Lovely upgrade to old movie theater”
Review of The UC Theatre

The UC Theatre
Ranked #52 of 88 things to do in Berkeley
Attraction details
Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

On 5/27/2018, went to a concert after waiting outside for 30 minutes. “Limited seating” meant 10 small tables and lots of chairs above a standing- only area. Half the tables were Reserved and a staff member kept us from sitting there. Limited food and wine, beer, and four mixed drinks were available at the bar. A waitress came around once. I had a plastic cup of red wine for $10. The volume was high and the acoustics need improving. I could not understand words sung.
This theater is a non-profit, educational venture for students of theater arts. It’s in downtown Berkeley and parking in a garage few blocks away is best.

We saw Aimee Mann & the sound was impecable. We were down on the ground floor, standing only, the way a gig should be. Never felt to crowded, spacious, high ceilings, great lighting and down to earth staff. Great venue, lucky Berkeley.

Heard that a band that we saw over July 4 wknd would be at this new place and decided to see them On Saturday night. So glad we did. The Venue was perfect for those who either want to dance near the band or sit and have a drink in the back. We noticed that people can reserve tables as well.. The drinks were not too expensive and they also have a small food menu.
The dance floor was not too crowded..Sound was great!!
and another big plus was that there were at least 10 stalls in the Women's room.

It´s a great place to listen good music. The venue is always amazing, good prices and great ambiance. Three levels and the first one is the best to listen the concert.

Had a great time at this new slick venue seeing They Might Be Giants! Great spaces on the dance floor, right up at the stage. Lots of different levels of seating, a bar on every level, beautiful restoration of an elegant old movie house. Amazing sound system. The place is new, it should only get better with time! Nice staff, friendly & helpful.
