Dear Valued Patron,
First, I’d like to take the opportunity to thank you, Celebrity Theatre’s loyal patrons, for your continued support. I’ve learned a lot from customer feedback this year! Our staff works tirelessly to ensure a pleasant and safe experience at Celebrity Theatre.
Upgrades and expenses such as sales tax, employee wages, maintenance and repairs continue to increase. Celebrity Theatre is a privately owned & operated facility. Although the theatre has received historic designation, this does not include any financial assistance. Preserving, maintaining and upgrading a historic venue creates unique hurdles. We are faced with challenges unseen by similar facilities that rely on revenue from gaming or city funding. Therefore, we have decided to raise the parking fee. We have taken time to research the cost of parking at other venues/events in the Phoenix area. We feel the increase we have chosen to go with is still a great deal comparatively speaking.
Effective March 20, 2015 parking will increase to $10.00/vehicle.
Some of you may have noticed the exciting changes happening at this historic theatre. Recent upgrades include:
- Remodeling portions of the theatre, including the downstairs club, backstage dressing rooms & greenroom.
- New flooring/carpet throughout entire building.
- New seating in the first three rows, as well as Sections A1, A2 & half of A-11. We have ordered the next round of seats, and hope to have a few more sections completed before summer!
- Added an additional parking lot.
- Increased security & police presence to ensure the safety of the artists, patrons & staff.
- Upgraded stage lighting.
- Added a selection of assisted listening devices (ALD). At no cost to patrons, the ALD’s include hearing aid compatible neckloops or silhouettes, on demand, and sign language interpreters and Computer Access Realtime Transcription (CART) upon request. To request in advance by email, please click HERE.
- New Website which includes an FAQ, Photo Gallery & History Timeline.
I have been working for Celebrity Theatre since 1989, and the parking fee has not increased in over 20 years! This increase will enable us to continue to make improvements & help us create a more enjoyable experience for our guests! We appreciate your understanding of this increase, as it was a very difficult decision.
Like us on Facebook & follow us on Twitter, and let us know how we’re doing. Patron feedback is essential to a successful venue.
Again, thank you for your continued support and understanding.
General Manager, Celebrity Theatre
