Before the Show

Be Our Guest
We want you to enjoy a welcoming, inspiring experience every time you visit the Center. The Member and Patron Services Box Office is open through intermission during most events, and trained volunteer ushers and concierges are available to answer questions and provide assistance.

Encore Bar
Relax before the show in the Center’s spacious Dayton Fowler Grafman Atrium. The Encore Bar offers a variety of cocktails, refreshments and snacks. Covered drinks purchased at Encore Bar may be taken inside the theater. To avoid lines at intermission, you may pre-order your drinks before the show, and they will be ready for you to pick up at intermission.

Catwalk Lounge
Arrive early and elevate your Center experience! Connect with friends and enjoy the view in the exclusive Catwalk Lounge overlooking the Dayton Fowler Grafman Atrium. Opens 90 minutes before selected events. $12 admission includes light hors d’oeuvres and one alcoholic beverage of your choice or unlimited nonalcoholic beverages.

Shop Outside the Box
Bring home a memento of your experience, or find the perfect gift for someone special at the award-winning Store at the Center. The Store’s unique selection of merchandise includes artist-made jewelry, imaginative toys, fair-trade and upcycled/recycled crafts from around the world, stylish furnishings for home and office, and music, books and greeting cards.

Follow Your Art
Take a ‘selfie’ at Scottsdale Public Art’s world-famous LOVE sculpture. Visit the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA) next door to see the latest exhibitions, or experience sunset in James Turrell’s acclaimed Knight Rise skyspace. Back at the Center, explore the work of talented student artists in the Young@ArtGallery and ArtReach Space.
