In 2013, Comic-Con International added the Lyceum Theatre in Horton Plaza as a satellite programming room. The Lyceum offered special panel presentations not seen onsite at the Convention Center in a small, intimate, theaterlike atmosphere. Each panel was ticketed, with extremely limited seating. There was no extra charge for these tickets.
The Lyceum Theater is located behind Horton Plaza. Look for the large blue obelisk, opposite CVS, Jamba Juice, and Starbucks on the bottom level.
