My wife and I have been to several plays and concerts at the Bell Auditorium and we have had pretty good experiences and memories here. The parking is not bad (yes, you have to pay some for the better parking lot but it's worth it)....More

Went to see my daughter’s ballet. I would rate the facilities as average. The seats are the type companies buy (30 minute seats) for their workers so they don’t spend more than 30 minutes at lunch. Not the most comfortable. If you are 5’ 10”...More

Yes, going in here is like stepping back in time....but it had a cozy charm to it. Went to a concert for the first time here and enjoyed it. The acoustics were very good. The sight-lines=not bad at all. The restrooms were outdated and small,...More

The best thing about this place was the restroom which was clean. There is no handicapped access. The staff was downright rude. Doors may open early, but you aren’t going to be seated early. Once you are inside, you cannot go outside and come back...More

It's a lovely theater - big enough for good acoustics yet small enough for the performance to feel intimate. We'll be back!

We had excellent seats 6 rows from the front and centre stage. Comfortable seating, good security getting in and a very enjoyable evening. We were lucky and managed to park just around the corner before the concert started.

First the good news, parking is only $5! Went to see Shen Yun in Section 5 Row O, seats almost center and these should have been great seats but because of the way the chairs were arranged- it was terrible. The chairs were pretty comfortable,...More

We have been to the Bell before, but because of the horrible and uncomfortable seats we didn't go back for a while. We decided to purchase tickets to the four Broadway shows. So far we have seen two and they were excellent, but in spite...More

This place is great! Been here for several concerts over the last couple of years and have never been disappointed with this venue. I would say there are no bad seats in the house with one caveat. The second balcony, first row has a wall...More

Pleasantly surprised at the sound quality. The light show was fantastic as well. The concessions are a little bush league, but I must admit the prices are right! The seats are a little bit uncomfortable and crowded, but the quality of the music and sound...More

Apologies for not seeing this question earlier. There is lots of free parking right next the the auditorium along 7th street, across from the James Brown theatre.
