Accessibility was great. An elevator is on one side of the auditorium and a beautiful staircase on the other.

An added bonus about the theater was the fact that the bus stops for Metro, Culver City, and Santa Monica are just 50 feet or so away.

The theater staff was magnificent and very accommodating. It was a wonderful experience. The usher instructed me on how to reach my seat on the other side of the row. The only negative was two patrons who refused to allow me to pass them in order to reach the seat. I had to use another row occupied by half a dozen or so people instead of just two.

The theater is just off of Westwood Boulevard. There are many shops along that boulevard. The refreshment bar had coffee or wine at very reasonable prices. I think there were also cookies to nibble.

There are a few tables and seats in the ante room that make the wait for seating time comfortable. If you're solo, there's a nice sized table near an electrical outlet that's ideal for opening up your laptop.
