My husband and I attended a concert, and the sound projection was excellent. The seating was terribly uncomfortable and tight. Many of the seat were stained and dirty looking. The ushers were extremely helpful

Loved this venue for the intimate quality. Saw Jackson Browne in January. Perfect feel. Lovely town.

My wife and I have been to several plays and concerts at the Bell Auditorium and we have had pretty good experiences and memories here. The parking is not bad (yes, you have to pay some for the better parking lot but it's worth it)....More

Went to see my daughter’s ballet. I would rate the facilities as average. The seats are the type companies buy (30 minute seats) for their workers so they don’t spend more than 30 minutes at lunch. Not the most comfortable. If you are 5’ 10”...More

It's a lovely theater - big enough for good acoustics yet small enough for the performance to feel intimate. We'll be back!

We had excellent seats 6 rows from the front and centre stage. Comfortable seating, good security getting in and a very enjoyable evening. We were lucky and managed to park just around the corner before the concert started.

First the good news, parking is only $5! Went to see Shen Yun in Section 5 Row O, seats almost center and these should have been great seats but because of the way the chairs were arranged- it was terrible. The chairs were pretty comfortable,...More

We have been to the Bell before, but because of the horrible and uncomfortable seats we didn't go back for a while. We decided to purchase tickets to the four Broadway shows. So far we have seen two and they were excellent, but in spite...More

Apologies for not seeing this question earlier. There is lots of free parking right next the the auditorium along 7th street, across from the James Brown theatre.
