About San Diego Civic Theatre

San Diego Civic Theatre

The San Diego Civic Theatre is a theatre and entertainment venue in downtown San Diego. It serves as the primary home of the San Diego Opera but also hosts musicals, concerts, and other entertainment events. The San Diego Civic Theatre opened in 1965 and has a capacity of just under 3,000 people, making it the largest performing arts venue in Southern California.

Where are the Best Places to Sit at the San Diego Civic Theatre

The dress circle is the ideal location to see a show at the San Diego Civic Theatre. This section is located at the back of the lower level, giving guests sitting there a wide angle of the entire stage but making them feel close to the performers. Of course, the orchestra section is located closer to the stage and will have great seats, especially if they are located central to the stage. There are also great tickets available in the Mezzanine and Balcony sections if they are near the middle of those sections and have a straight-ahead view of the stage. 

Tips for Visiting the San Diego Civic Theatre

The San Diego Civic Theatre recommends that ticket holders arrive an hour before the start of the show to get through security and find their seats before the performance begins. Ideally, non-essential items will be left at home. Arriving too early isn’t that bad, as there are food and drinks available for guests. It’s also worthwhile to take a little time to gaze at the architecture inside the theater, most notably a nearly 3,000-pound chandelier with 52,000 crystals.

Food to Try at the San Diego Civic Theatre

Since it’s located in downtown San Diego, the San Diego Civic Theatre is a short walk away from some of the city’s best restaurants. That gives visitors plenty of options to have a meal before or after a show. There are also concession stands and bars inside the theater that serve wine, local craft beer, and a rotating menu of items provided by a catering company. Finally, the Civic Center Cafe is located next door to the theatre and offers soup, salad, and sandwich options, as well as a full breakfast menu.
