It only took a few minutes to see the theatre, however, you can get a tour if you like. It was nice to see a grand theatre of old. So much more character than theatres today.

This theatre, restored around 2001, is a little jewel. It's quite beautiful. We were attending a Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation meeting and had the treat of hearing the organist play the theatre's organ. It rises from the floor just like at the Fox!

I've been to the Rylander several times for different events, it's a beautiful attraction in itself. They've hosted Beauty Pageants, Dance Recitals, and Annie Plays (for many years) that I've attended. The employees were friendly, the restroom (women's, don't know about the men's) were very clean, and the coffee shop is an added attraction.

There were no official tours but an actor happened to be there and showed us around. He even took our picture and we really had a good time.

Organ music before the play was outstanding. Play was good for a local community troupe. Price was good. The renovation of the theater is outstanding.

I love this gorgeous and historic venue. Pretty enough to get married in with some terrific seating! The restoration was done magnificently... A must see in Americus...

RylanderDirector, Manager at Rylander Theatre, responded to this review

Thanks so much for your kind words about our beautiful theatre! As a matter of fact, there have been 3 weddings at the Rylander, my own being the most recent in 2010. I booked the theatre as a wedding venue before ever taking the job as Managing Director. It was suggested to me and I fell in love with it... More

We were visiting Americus and saw an event advertised at the Rylander and decided to go. Classic, movie palace with an organ. I was actually surprised to see two balconies. It is not too big so I think you could probably see from most anywhere. Seating was comfortable.

The box office manager let us go in and look around and take pictures of this beautiful decorated theater. It felt like a minature of the famous Fox Theater in Atlanta.

We enjoyed a concert at this renovated theater and were utterly charmed by the 1920s decor. Don't miss the art work in the lobby.

RylanderDirector, General Manager at Rylander Theatre, responded to this review

The artwork in the lobby is the work of local artist Jeff Williams. His information can be found on the Rylander Theatre website. We are so fortunate to display his beautiful paintings as they compliment the Art Deco decor of the theatre so well. We are so glad you enjoyed both the concert and our beautiful theatre! More
