This Center is absolutely gorgeous! We have seen approximately 60 shows here since it opened. There really isn't a bad seat in the house. The chairs as re comfortable. The ushers are friendly volunteers. Everyone is escorted to their seats. People with mobility issues are given extra help if they need it. The lighting and sound are super. The volume... More

Attractive and modern building with restrooms and elevators convenient to the stairs. Plenty of places to sit and quietly converse if one arrives early. Seating is rather uncomfortable, but not as bad as other places. Sound quality excellent. I would be interested in hearing music (we attended an improve comedy program), but with the large over-hanging balconies, I hesitate to... More

Saw this great lady Nov. 19, 2016. She has not lost any of her talent. Still sings like an angel and looks great. The Cerritos Center is a lovely venue and the people there are very helpful. Parking was easy as usual and we had a wonderful time.

Attended ABBA last night at the Cerritos Center it was a Great Performance. The Center has the best performances, lots of free parking close which was nice in the rain. It's on 15 min drive for us and the price of tickets is an extra value. Lots of restaurants close by as well. Give it a try.

We traveled here from Arizona for a birthday celebration to see Wynonna Judd and The Big Noise. The concert and her performance were very good and the venue is lovely. We did find that the instruments at many times were louder than her singing and I don't know if that was the venue fault or sound techs fault. But it's... More

Visited for a concert of mostly Broadway show tunes. Wasn't sure what to expect from the venue but it turned out to be a really fun evening! The lobby is large and sprawling and last night before the show, a silent auction was happening, all proceeds benefitting CCPA. The staff is very warm and welcoming and made sure to help... More

The acoustics is wonderful for concerts, and the line up of events is diverse and fun. What I like best about this venue is that it is not so huge as to get lost in the eaves but small enough to feel a part of the entertainment and be with a family of friends all around you.
