Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre In San Diego, California

America’s largest interactive comedy murder mystery dinner show is now playing in San Diego, California! Solve a hilarious crime while you feast on a fantastic dinner. Just beware! The culprit is hiding in plain sight somewhere in the room, and you may find yourself as a Prime Suspect before you know it!

Join us at the Courtyard by Marriott San Diego Downtown for an event that is very different from a traditional murder mystery dinner show. Our actors are not dressed in costume and are hidden in the audience! This results in a fun, social and interactive evening suitable for all adults.

We perform at the Courtyard by Marriott San Diego Downtown, a newly renovated full-service hotel in beautiful San Diego, California. Once home to the renowned San Diego Trust & Savings Bank, the reinvented Courtyard by Marriott San Diego Downtown welcomes guests with the sophisticated comfort of modern accommodations, while maintaining the character of the distinguished former financial institution. From the moment you step through the revolving front doors, you will be whisked away to an inviting and intimate space to unwind, gather your thoughts, or share a laugh and a beverage with friends.

Playing Saturday nights
at the Courtyard by Marriott San Diego Downtown!

Tickets starting at only $64.95 (Holiday Season Pricing May Vary)/person!

Your ticket includes a wildly entertaining evening
of dining and mystery!

Each ticket includes our signature award-winning murder mystery show, along with a four-course plated dinner, waitstaff gratuity, music, and plenty of surprises during the show.
