Ambience and dress

Although there is no official dress “code,” style of dress generally varies at Tilles Center according to the event. At family matinees and evening family specials, the dress ranges from jeans to casual business wear. At evening events in the Main Hall, the dress tends to be casual or dressy business wear. At annual Gala Nights, the dress may be more formal: the rear part of the audience (in the regular public-ticket seats) are in business wear, but the front part of the audience (the Gala Dinner guests) are in black tie.
