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.

I love this performing arts center for many reasons: Convenient drive, free parking, intimate setting, variety of scheduled performances, close to a major hotel, and also available for wedding receptions and other functions. Very proud of this venue.

If you are introducing your children to the theater or a fun night with friends, or a romantic evening this is the theater to go to enjoy it all. Beautiful venue with a very good sound no matter where you are seated. The staff is courteous, helpful, and eager to help you in any way to make your night enjoyable.... More

Everything that there was great that was snack bars and the performances were completely overwhelming. The wood balconies on the 3rd 4th and 5th floor so you could see it better

This is one of the outstanding theaters in Southern California. This will be my 20th year there as an Arts Ambassador. It is the only theater in the United States that has 5 different configurations on the orchestra floor. It has a tremendous variety of programs so there is something for every one. They also offer programs for school children... More

The Cerritos Center is a modern multi functional theater that offer a number of seating venues from "In the Round" to traditional proscenium theater for musical theater, dance and popular music performances. The upper levels really need opera-glasses to see the stage clearly. Cheap seats are really not very good. All in all a very nice theater for an evening... More

This place is just awesome! Beautiful interior with great acoustic. Plenty of good seats from many different sections. There are bars on every level, which is really helpful during intermission (and always welcomed). Parking is outstanding, with a ton of free parking in the area and getting in and out is really easy. One hint, people are usually dressed to... More
