why would you have to print the tickets and waste paper when they had machines that could read from your phone?

Part at Horton Plaza in the Vegetable Garage. Free validation machines in the middle of the mall. No purchase necessary.

When going to Balboa Theater, remember to get your parking validated if you park in Horton Plaza. Otherwise you will pay about $8 an hour!

At the movie I went to they sold bagged popcorn mix, other sweet treats, wine, beer, mixed drinks and soda. They take credit card!

You can get parking at the Horton Plaza Mall and get it validated at the validation machine before the movie. Since my movie was exactly 1 hour and 45 mins, my parking was free!

Find street parking north of Broadway and a few blocks west. We're always able to find parking around 5th West and C. Street parking is free after 6pm. (arrive around 5:45 and pay the quarter to the meter to guarantee a spot.)

Easy to park at Horton Plaza, but definitely remember to get it validated by buying something at the mall. We had lunch at Hard Rock café and then walked across to the event.

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.

Ate at Gourmet India. Tried to eat at the new Middle Eastern restaurant on side of Horton Plaza but service too slow to make the show.
