The inside of the Theatre is very comfortable, excellent sound system, and usually we are in the Orchestra area which is closest to the stage. Excellently presented, interactive with the audience, and gave a great performance.

The Merced Theater has been restored to close to its original design and is wonderful. The acoustics are fabulous. I have attended four or five productions over the last three years and thoroughly enjoyed all of them.

In the late 60's and early 70's the interior of this theatre was beautiful and it has been restored to it's original design after having been cut up and made into several movie theaters. The decor is Spanish and the seats are plush. The managers are doing an excellent job of bringing well known talent to Merced to perform on... More

I have seen about 5 comedy shows here. The seating is a little tight if your in the middle. It's very nice inside and should be used more for other things.
