San Diego Civic Theatre, San Diego Reviews - Write a Review

  • Growing up in San Diego this area has been better. Should bring back the coffee stands and also have a light food carts. The grill has closed. Was very busy here before. The city could flip for a new floor system. But it's shown the mayor couldn't or wouldn't keep the Chargers so why improve an important area that holds our city's seal upon the entrance.

  • Feels like a hidden venue in downtown but overall an alright theatre capable of holding 3k patrons. Looks a little old but still a good place to enjoy an event

  • Just saw the Avett Bros concert here last week, it had been a long time since I saw a concert at the Civic Center and what a really cool venue it is. Plenty of room between the seats in front of you for walking and for standing room (as everyone stood the entire concert naturally). We were down on the floor near the stage and was terrific, the floor is sloped so that even standing it is easy to see over those standing in front of you. And lots of exits when its over, very easy to exit the building as well.

  • Easy access by the San Diego trolley. Walking distance to great restaurants and bars in the Gaslamp district. Great place to see live shows.

  • A very classy lovely clean theatre with a wonderful acoustic and sound quality. Opera is translated on overhead marquee for those like myself who need it! Beautiful chandelier lights the foyer and upper levels which can be seen from their tables. Bathrooms on each level with plenty of stalls. Parking was hard to find and is pricey in the area. I expected ten dollars and ended up with twenty due to parking in a lot not by the theater. Unexpected construction caused that. We enjoyed the opera and the Theatre and will be back.
