This theatre is in the vibrant downtown district of Modesto, Stanislaus County's largest city. It's season is always a fine blend of Broadway shows, opera, symphony, dance, comedy, plays, and many polar music groups. Parking is conveniently available in two parking structures. Many restaurants in the blocks around the Gallo will get you out in time for the show. One... More

A well designed and beautiful venue offering local and national entertainment. Staff is friendly and helpful. Comfortable seating in the lobby. We attended two wonderful performances of the ballet Giselle by Central West Ballet, the local professional troupe.

Visited The Gallo center to see the Love Janis Show. As a child of the 60's I was a skeptic that this could be a poor imitation of Janis Joplin. I read some of the reviews about the production and decided to go. The shows was amazing and the venue was fantastic. The state of the art sound system just... More

Very nice! I saw Peter Frampton, the sound quality is great. The lights were sometimes annoying. Security was a little much. If they say no cameras, they will dog you all night.

It has been claimed to have "perfect accoustics" by a world- renown authority from New York! It is a beautiful building, with 2 theatres to enjoy shows. The concessions are reasonable. A coat check is available. elaborate lobby area to relax before the show.

Attended a event and the show was fantastic! It was not just the show that impressed me as the Ushers, Ticket Agents and Bartenders were also very hospitable and so gracious. You could really tell that they enjoyed working there and we're proud to be part of this Modesto icon. Definitely an experience I will never forget! The ticket prices... More

I have seen a variety of shows here and I have always had a great experience. Buy your tickets directly from the box office for the best deals. My daughter has attended the summer camp and the kids put on a wonderful show in the smaller theater that she still talks about 2 years later! Thank you, Gallo Center for... More

You need to go to the Gallo. I have been to several concerts, and a comedy show. The sound is the best anywhere. I have been to many hundred concerts everywhere, but nowhere, does the sound system rival the Gallo. Every seat I have been in, including the front row is fantastic. I have been in the upper deck,, the... More
