Monday - Wednesday: 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m.
Thursday - Sunday: 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m.
Heralded in international guides as a "must see" tourist attraction - arraignments often feature petty criminals, drug addicts, drunks, hookers and all sorts of side-show acts that offer real-life community theater productions that are quick and to the point.
