Frequently Asked Questions

Is the theatre available to rent for a show or function?

To inquire about rental information, rates and availability, please call our Events Manager at (909) 621-8031.

What about other websites that have your tickets for sale, should they be trusted?

You will always find the legitimate lowest price ticket through the Bridges Auditorium Box Office. We are unable to verify or guarantee the authenticity of tickets which were not purchased directly through Bridges Auditorium. For this reason, and because we are unable to provide any information regarding ticket purchases to a party other than the cardholder on the order, we do not recommend purchasing tickets from third-party resellers.

What does “Will Call” mean?

Will Call means that your tickets will be held at the theatre and can be picked up before the performance at the Will Call window, located at the Box Office.

How early should I arrive for a show?

Our Box Office opens 2 hours before show time on performance days. Theatre seating usually begins 30-45 minutes before show time.

Does the theatre have a dress code?

There is no set dress code for the theatre, but most patrons dress business casual.

Where is the closest ATM?
