the King Arts District as a whole is on the upswing. Huge local conscientiousness is happening and making improvements every month. A great place to catch live performing national artists, jazz, readings and more.

Went to see a one-man show there and was surprised at the beauty of this theater. Excellent acoustics and from the looks of the adjacent rooms to theater, a great place to hold an event. Convenient parking across the street. We will definitely watch for performances scheduled here. We'll be back

Our Martin Luther King Performing and Cultural Arts Complex is wonderful. I have been to many events over the years that have virtually used every available space - inside and out. I always expect to have a fantastic time. I'm never disappointed.
