Our programs will start at 5:00PM California time Moday through Friday and will run for two hours.
You must be in your theater seat by 4:50PM promptly. There is no
intermission, but there are commercial breaks. And no, you cannot bring
popcorn or soda into the theater. Bottled water will be available for sale
in the lobby just prior to the performances. Saturday and Sunday night performances have not yet been developed. See our Program Schedule page
for more information.
No one will be admitted, even if they have a paid ticket,
after the night's program starts. The show is fed live by satellite to the
eastern United States from the
Mississippi River eastward, and is heard by digital delay to the Western
half of the United States from 8:00PM to 10:00PM in the appropriate time
Our nightly programs will also be streamed to American Radio Theater members who pay a modest annual subscription fee. All streamed
programs include live commercials, just like the Golden Days of radio.
Members can also download MP3 versions of the programs for their own
personal use. The programs are protected by copyright. Please do not
distribute them through file sharing programs. Membership information will
be posted at a later date.
Every member of our theater audience will
receive a free set of stereo headphones as a souvenir. They plug into a jack
in the theater seat so the audience member can enjoy the same sound that the
home audience enjoys.
