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 is a great community playhouse. It's not fancy. The Augusta Players put on 5-7 shows each year. I've always gone to see a Christmas Carol. I never get sick of it. Puts me in the holiday spirit. For a local group and under budget, the do a good job. They also host other shows from out of town. There... More

In this intimate venue, sight lines are excellent and the sound quality is very good, although less so in the balcony. For many events, adult beverages are available in the lobby area, and you can...

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
