There are 6 theaters clustered together in a 2 block area with a parking structure. The seating provides excellent views of the stage.

The Mesa arts center has several smaller theaters, multiple performances at any given time, local and international entertainment, prices generally average or cheaper, great acoustics, multiple out door festivals and concerts usually free. Great value. Hugs
