Palace Theater Orchestra

The orchestra section has 27 rows in total starting from AA and ending with ZZ. This seating section is divided into two large sections in the middle with two smaller section on each side.

The middle two sections hold a majority of the seats with the left subsection seats being odd numbered and falling in the range of 101 to 127. The right subsection has even numbered seats falling in the range of 102 to 128. The corner two sections are much smaller with only 12 rows each with varying seat counts. The left outer section is odd numbered (1-9) and the right outer section is even numbered (2-10).

Palace Theater Mezzanine

The mezzanine section, one of the two elevated sections in the theatre, has two major subsections, the front mezzanine and the rear mezzanine.

The front mezzanine has three parts, namely left front mezzanine with odd numbered seats (1-27), center front mezzanine with consecutively numbered seats (101-114), and right front mezzanine with even numbered seats (2-28). The rear mezzanine, on the other hand, has two subsections.

The left balcony subsection is odd numbered from 1 to 27, the center balcony has consecutively numbered seats falling in the range of 101 to 114, and the right balcony subsection has even numbered seats in the range of 2 to 28.

Which Seats Offer the Best View?


Given its size, Palace Theater has a lot of great seating options. The best view can be had from the middle seats in first couple of rows (AA-B) of the orchestra section. The seats in this section are closest to the stage and offer an unobstructed view with pitch perfect sound.

Next we have the front rows (AA-B) of the mezzanine. Some people prefer the mezzanine seats over orchestra due to mezzanine seats being elevated and hence offering a slightly better look at the stage. The price for both these sections are pretty much the same (and most expensive), so you can take your pick depending on how much you like heights.

Which Seats/Section Offer the Best Value for Money?


For obvious reasons, the seats offering the best view of the theatre are always the most expensive too. Since spending $200+ on one ticket is not an option for everyone, we have the next best thing; seats which offer the fine mix of being value for money.

The middle pack of rows in the orchestra section (F-O) offer a consistently good look at the stage while being priced considerably lesser than the premium orchestra seats. Similarly, the middle rows (C-F) in the front mezzanine section offer a good look at the stage without costing as much as the premium mezzanine seats.

The front balcony rows A to B are also not considered too shabby when it comes to value for money seats in the Palace Theater.
