Sphere Theater
Optional Side Quest Area

The Sphere Theater, or the Luca Sphere Theater rather, is not so much as side quest as it is an optional area that you can visit. Completionists may consider it a side quest though as they seek to purchase and obtain all of the Music and Movie Spheres.

The Music Spheres and Movie Spheres can be purchased for 2,000 gil and 5,000 gil each, respectively. They allow you to listen to music found throughout the game and watch videos and cinematic FMVs that occur as you play through the story.
