The Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts is a music venue in Cerritos, California that spans 154,000 square feet. The Center features many flexible seating configurations, and can seat up to 1,800 people in an arena setting and up to 900 people in a recital hall setting.
The Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts opened to the public on Jan. 9, 1993. There was some debate surrounding the construction of such a large theatre in the location. Critics worried that a large theatre in a small town with lots of competition from other venues in southern California would draw in few patrons. Consultants eased these worries with a state-of-the-art configuration, and Frank Sinatra sold the theatre out during its first three nights, helping put the Cerritos Center on the map.
