A total of 1,352 vehicle and trailer parking spaces are provided by a combination of a central parking garage and surface parking surrounding the stage and office buildings.

Located on the Rosecrans Corridor in the South Bay of Los Angeles, MBSC is surrounded by Manhattan Beach to the West, El Segundo and LAX to the North, Hawthorne to the East and Redondo Beach to the South.
