    Having seen many shows in this venue, Not a bad seat in the house. They have a diverse menu of programs. Well placed and formatted to enhance the university and neighborhood community.

    Don't close your eyes for a second. It's so easy to fall asleep in here! Super cozy.

    This theater provides excellent sound and sight lines but make sure to meet your friends outside, it's hard to get cell reception once you go through the entrance.

    This is an excellent, modern venue with exciting acts from all over the world. Skirball's stadium style seating and small-moderate size provide fantastic sightlines no matter where you sit.

    I desperately want "skirball" to be a sport, an ultra-violent, stomach-churning, sport in which people regularly lose limbs but gain respect.

    We love that this theatre can seat 850 people but still feel pretty intimate. Read more about Skirball Center here: http://bit.ly/wLbxQ2
