“Local Opera”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Beautiful accoustics for local events. Everything from BB King to local opera and Shakespeare can be fully enjoyed here. Parking is a bit tight, so arrive early to get the best spaces near the elevator.

This relatively new performing arts center on the Cal Poly SLO Campus has great acoustics no matter where you are sitting. It is lovely inside and out.

“Very well designed Center”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

Have been here many times and just about any seat is good. I would prefer to sit up close to the stage, but some shows it does not matter where you are.
