Came here for an opening session to a conference and this auditorium is very beautiful on the inside. All around Sacramento you can find beautiful architecture such as this auditorium. I recommend seeing a play or just taking pictures on its great steps.

The tickets show Sacramento Community Center Theater at this address where we say an excellent performance of The Nutcracker. We enjoyed it more than San Francisco ballet as they use more children and a few pets during the performance. It held the attention of our...More

We had seats in the back row for "Home For The Holidays". From that height you can take in the whole spectacle and the sound comes through quite clear. The top tier is not a place for the disabled as there are no hand rails....More

This auditorium was restored about ten years ago, and I am so thankful that our city had the for-site to fund it! "The Memorial" as we call it, has housed countless concerts, graduations, events of all kinds for something like 60 years. When the gorgeous...More

My high school chose to have my graduation here. I have lived in Sacramento my whole life, but never actually went inside. This place really is fantastic; great acoustics. Nothing like Arco Arena (Or whatever they call it now) and centrally located in Downtown Sacramento.
