$9 parking in the CSULB Carpenter Center lot or, if you're lucky, a free street spot on Atherton adjacent the theater. Reasonable bar (beer and wine) prices, though selection is limited.

A few cussing words in there. "bitchy, damn it, ass." Didn't like that for my 5 and 4 year old. Also, a scene where the father tells his elf son that he never asked for him to be born and to "get out of his life." Too dramatic for small children. Needed to have less scary words. This affected my kids.

If you have trouble with climbing many stairs buy tickets elsewhere and get much lower row. The seating area we had had many stairs and Mom had a great deal of problems getting up them. This venue also only has right and left entrances to the rows of seats. The rows are very long so depending on where you sit you could have a lot of people going past you back and forth, especially if you get seated to early.
