Attraction details
Owner description: The Imperial Theatre is noted in the National Register as critical to the character of the Broad Street Historic District. At ninety-two years old, with its immutable history, Edwardian style structure and current function it is the only medium size traditional proscenium theatre capable of flying scenery in the Augusta area, and for this reason it is a critical component of the infrastructure for area performing arts groups. It is the only performing arts theatre within a 150-mile radius that connects artists and audience members to historic social entertainment by providing a gracious and historic setting for all area citizens.

This Theatre is a wonderful place to go. Our favorite is the Musical Christmas Carol....We love to have Dinner at Frog Hollow and then to the Theatre. Brings back so many memories of the beautiful old theatres.

I liked that this place has historic value and is downtown Augusta. The seats are not very comfortable and the parking is not always convenient but overall, this is a nice place to see the various shows that come to Augusta periodically.

Seats are comfortable and there is not a bad viewing site in the house. You do not have the sardine feeling in this theater.

Jeanne did a one night stop at the IT and spent a couple hours telling her stories. I'd heard several before, but there were also a number of new stories. Jeanne knows how to tell a funny tale!

Old small theater that has been saved and is gradually being restored. Great music events here at very affordable prices; gets us to drive over from Atlanta. Great seats in front rows of balcony. A nice place for a night of live music. Check out their scheduled events and enjoy

My husband and I were quite surprised at the age & the charm of this theatre, we loved it! Def will be back to see more shows! It felt like we were in somebody's living room, it had a close family feel and that was one thing that made it really special! I love buildings like this and i'm glad... More

The Imperial Theatre is still a gorgeous, historic place. If you ever get the opportunity to go there for any event, please do go. Support this local icon and soak up the ambiance.

There are only four stalls in the women's bathroom. Be prepared for a LONG wait. The seating in the balcony is ripped. Paint is peeling off of the beautiful walls. It is just sad. The beauty of the facility must be revived, because the productions are top notch!

I have seen several shows at the Imperial because I live in Augusta Georgia. I really don't see anything fab about the place. I don't know, maybe I'm missing something.

I have already seen all the performances they have here many years ago. It is great for children who go on field trips. Affordable tickets but you will not find Broadway level performances here. I have heard that they are planning on renovating but things happen very slowly in this area.
