“A Perfect Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Located on the Campus of The University of Miami this venue is small (capacity around 1,000) and the acoustics are perfect. Saw a performance last night and found it to be roomy and comfortable. Right now there is construction all around that area of UM's Campus so parking can be challenging, but the venue is a delight.

“Old Venue.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

The Gusman Center is an old venue that is adequate I guess for small local events. It is old, but worth supporting.

“Historic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

I watched Obama inauguration on a big screen in this theater. It was memorable. I went to 2 concerts there as well. The theater is historic and looks so different from every places in miami. It is clean and welcoming. This old feeling as soon as you walk inside. It is magical.
