Went here for a concert. Was enjoyable as a smaller venue. There was an adequate amount of workers to assist with seating, information etc. Acoustics were good and seating comfortable. A short walk to decent parking structure

My wife and I attended the "Celebrating 60 Years of Detroit Soul Music" last night at the Saban Theater. We paid $300.00 per couple and had real good seats. The show was a complete ripoff and farce. From the beginning we had a feeling it...More

It was exciting to me to see this icon sing and play. He is a solo act with backup musicians. This is not a loud band. And, disappointingly, the Saban does not have any speakers upstairs on/for the balcony and we could hardly hear him....More

This is the second event I've attended at the Saban Theater. The first was lecture and the last was a concert. The show was amazing - one of the best, if not the best guitarist I've heard (Jesse Cook) - and the acoustics were great....More

General admission means 1st come 1st served for seating. People reserve seating for their friends, resulting in those arriving must sit higher. Doors open at 6pm, however that refers to the Lobby and not the actual theatre seating. Theatre doors opened at 8 for a...More

The venue is lovely small and intimate, not a bad seat in the place. However you MUST advise the guests of where to park and road closures before an event. Because I had never been there before and we arrived early, I had enough time...More

This is quite a superb Theater from the Art Deco 30s. Many of the lights and the huge metal surround of the stage have been restored already. The chairs are new and comfortable. The foyer areas are huge and a little more spent here would...More

Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and
today you can still feel its small town origins, even
though it has become a major tourist attraction and
business center for the entertainment industry. This
town lives up to its reputation as an area full of
designer retail stores and residential streets lined
with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial

There is only a small stand for snacks like the kind they sell at movie theaters. And cash only. Best to eat at a close-by restaurant, perhaps Tutt' a Post' Trattoria.
