- The 25,100 square foot building, conveniently located near the intersection of Embarcadero Road and El Camino Real, features some California mission-style architectural touches, including four arches on the second story of each side wall that will eventually serve as theater box seats.
- The theater also has a gracefully arched ceiling and a deep, expansive stage.
- Other features include a full fly tower, which enables scenery and backdrops to be raised and lowered from above, and a Meyer Constellation sound system that optimizes sound throughout the theater. (From PALY Theatre Website)
