Wonderful venue. A reasonably priced entertainment option for the beach area. You can sit anywhere in the Armstrong Theater and have a good seat. Plenty of parking at no cost. A full bar is offered and we had a chance to meet the stars of the show after.

The Torrance Cultural Arts Center has all kinds of events, from theater to concerts to multi-cultural events. There is, also, a lovely garden that is perfect for quiet contemplation or talks.

This place is indeed a nice concert venue to go see a concert as well as take in other things that go on there. So if you want a nice place to go and see some great programs and see a nice venue for concerts. Go to this place it is really overall very nice.

Excellent, relatively intimate concert facility. Good parking. Signage a tad confusing from the street actually finding the theatre. A tad dark walking around there at night.

Although its not open standard hours we were able to walk thru the charming parts of old Torrence then meet with the museum folks who answered all our questions. They were so thrilled at our level of interest! Very enjoyable

I went to a seminar/expo and walked around the grounds. They are beautifully kept and peaceful. It looks like it would be a great place to hold an event like a wedding.

Wonderful city cultural center. Lot of talented people exhibiting their art work. Very encouraging place for those so inclined with artistic talent. Happens not to be me, but I can still enjoy the exhibits.

Have taken several art and dance classes at this location. It is close to the civic library as well, which makes it so convenient. It has some great shows, performances and cultural festivals and it is a beautiful spot
