Every big city should have small theaters to attract locals and tourists alike. We loved going to the Spreckles to see Billy Elliott. They were kind to my handicapped aunt, parking was easy and the show was a delight. Good job on everyone’s part.

We came to see the Nutcracker. Intimate old theater. You can see the orchestra perform along side the show. Unfortunately bathrooms are small and crowded. Parking below building is only $10/valet.
