Parking in Horton Plaza is incredibly expensive. I've never paid that much for parking there. I'll be looking for alternative places to park.

Really convenient to buy parking ticket for Horton Plaza garage in the Balboa lobby. Turned out to be a good deal @ $10 for 6 hours.

If the parking validation person in Gambia theatre tries to talk you into validating at the mall because it's cheaper. Don't listen. It's just two buck less but by the time you get out of the show the validation machine is off so parking will be $26! We had to go back to the theatre, which was closed so we had to get security to ask someone in the office to sell us one for $10. So your best bet is buying validation at the theatre and don't let her talk you out of it!

We enjoyed a brazilian steakhouse "Rei de Gado" on the same block as theater. Excellent dining choice.

Parking validation at Horton Plaza expires at 9:30 p.m. and the car in front of us to get out of the garage was arguing over this for seven minutes while we were forced to wait.
