I attended a play in this venue. Parking is easy. The lovely theater is bright and it does not appear to have any bad seats. There is a small snack bar area. The play was from Coyote Stageworks and quite enjoyable - lighting and sound were good. Ushers and the artistic director were friendly and helpful. The venue is 107... More

I went to see Giada Valenti. She is a singer from Venice, Italy. Fabulous performer. Her performance was enhanced by the comfortable size of this theater. There is not a bad seat in the house. The sound system was good quality and not too loud. Seats and aisles are comfortable and not cramped. The theater is located next to the... More

We've been here many times and last night we went to hear Maureen McGovern. This is a perfect venue to showcase HER voice because the audio acoustics are excellent. The theater is a 433-seat venue and it is plush, beautiful and a delightful place to visit. It is behind the Palm Springs Art Museum but still part of the building... More

The less known venue has far superior performances then the McCallum. It is always sold out. The demographic of course is aging, so they will need to reinvent themselves with productions that appeal to a new generation, or they will fizzle out over time. The theatre is excellent, seats comfortable, leg room nice. Parking can be difficult so give yourself... More

We were there for a couple of movies during the film festival and since the theatre was designed by Williams I was excited to see it. I wasn't disappointed. It's smaller than I anticipated (no balcony) but had some interesting features. I liked how the sides of the seating areas were built out for quick exit and emptying. That seems... More

We took the tour of Sunnylands---where the Annenberg Theatre is located. This is a tour not to miss. It is an impressive home featuring a wonderful collection of art work. Worth the money and time!
