“Average Indoor Arena”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

They have a special exhibit right now for the LA Kings and their Stanley cup, but don't get your hopes up, the Stanley Cup is not on display.....though they'll offer to take a picture of you with a PICTURE of it, for a fee.

“Take a loan for the beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Rolling Stones concert and the center is clean, well staffed with friendly employees, lines weren't too long for bathroom or concessions. Sound good for the most energetic, 'old' band in the world and the seats were not uncomfortable. Only complaint, they seriously rip you off on beer, start at $8, but they were 'out', so had to buy beer starting over $10. We expect to pay an upcharge for beer in this type of venue, it just seemed about $2-3 too high. Pretzel was yummy, they have McDonald's in the center and some other options but we didn't have any. Smoking section on 3rd floor was HUGE and had concessions w/ a cool view of LA Live.

“Basketball and Ice Hockey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Saw the basketball and ice hockey here and it was fantastic. It doesn't say you can't take video cameras in on the ticket and security tried to take it off me the first time we went in. I had to tell them the ticket didn't state it so I didn't know and I would make sure I wouldn't use it. It was lucky they let me keep it in my bag.

“Wonderful resturaunts and movie theaters too:)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

LA film fests home turf is a great one. We love that we can grab a coffee, or a really great meal, between films here:) Try Trader Vic's for a world famous (because it was created by them) mai tai and some apps. if you want something quick and tasty!
