Facility Information

Suggested Arrival Time
Please arrive early, we make every possible effort to start BCA events and performances on time. We suggest that you plan your travel so that you arrive at the Bienes Center approx. 30-45 minutes prior to show time. Our lobby doors will open (1) hour prior to show time, doors to theater seating will open 30 minutes prior to show time. Arriving early will allow your party time to enjoy a beverage and/or snack in our lobby or outdoor courtyards. Arriving late can often result in listening/viewing the show on our lobby video monitors until there is a suitable pause in the program for seating. In order to cause minimal disruptions to other guests and performers our ushers will seat all late arrivals in the back rows of the theater using the second floor entrances. The Bienes Center provides a very intimate setting and even the back rows offer fantastic views.

The BCA parking lot is located immediately to the West of the Bienes Center and will be open for all events and activities. The West lot is monitored by security. For all professional performances/events and certain STA events there is a fee for parking. The BCA lot is accessible from SW 12 Street. Please do not park in any other STA lot when attending a Bienes Center event.

Audience Etiquette
Please TURN OFF all cell phones and personal devices: talking, texting and using your device is distracting to others. Photography, audio and video recording of any type, regardless of the device/method, are strictly PROHIBITED. Please remain silent throughout the performance. Most of our events will include an intermission, because of this we ask that you refrain from getting up during the show. However; we do understand that sometimes children can get restless, please escort restless children to the lobby immediately. You will be able to see and hear the performance on our lobby video monitors; this often proves to be very helpful to the children, the other guests in the audience, and the performers on stage.

Snacks and Beverages
Snacks and beverages are for sale in our lobby, please note that we do not offer hot items or meals. Snacks and beverages purchased on site are allowed into the seating area but we ask that you eat and drink quietly. We purposely do not sell items that have strong odors or items that can be messy or noisy. Food and drink from outside vendors or brought from home is not allowed in the facility or on the property at any time.

As of April 2018 we are no longer offering facility rentals.
