Housed within the Student Union Memorial Center at the University of Arizona, the Gallagher Theater was built in 1971 as an on-campus movie theater. Back then, it consisted of 630 seats, which after renovation was brought down to 340. Today, the cinema is equipped with digital technology and a snack counter and continues hosting theme movie nights as it did earlier.
The Arizona Repertory Theatre is the official theater company of the University of Arizona and is located on campus. It has a reputation for giving excellent performances of musical, opera and theater works. All productions are staged by performing arts students and faculty members, delivering a great variety from traditional to extremely experimental. Ticket prices vary by performance. Parking during performances is available at the UofA garage on the northeast corner of Park and Campbell.
After falling into disrepair in the 1980s, this great old movie house of vaudeville fame in downtown Tucson has been successfully revived by an energetic local non-profit organization. It's now back in its old decadent glory, complete with 1,200 comfortable seats. It has also become a main venue for touring blues and rock musicians. So if you plan to watch a great concert, head to the Rialto Theatre to witness scintillating performances.
This is the closest thing in Tucson to a dinner theater. Patrons sit at tables munching on popcorn or ice cream while watching Western drama, science fiction, or the annual Christmas show. It's all parody, melodrama and audience participation through clapping, hissing and, of course, booing. The kids love it. So you are most welcome to enjoy this fun-filled roller-coaster ride at the Gaslight Theatre
