Recognized as an excellent setting for theatre, opera, dance, film and musical presentations, the Discovery Theatre boasts a stage in size equal to the Atwood Concert Hall with a seating capacity of approximately 700.

The auditorium of the Discovery Theatre is characterized by long, sweeping curves, defining partitions and balconies and a ceiling of silvery, saucer-shaped acoustical discs. The seat upholstery, a tapestry designed by Alaskan resident Paula Dickey entitled Salmonberries, adds to the overall effect with a palette of rose and forest green.

The Discovery Theatre seats approximately 700 and consists of two levels (orchestra and mezzanine).
