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. « less

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.

Intimate, old vaudeville theatre that has been in operation since 1918. It shows a little wear, but overall is in very good shape. Great place to see live music, plays and old movies . Hosts the Southern Soul & Song series which always features some of the top names in country and bluegrass. Also the home of the Augusta Players,... More

It's a good place to see a musical show or play. The seating is a little tight, but like stepping back in time.

This theater has hosted some of the biggest names in country, bluegrass, rock-and-roll. Fortunately the city has preserved it and it is used regularly.
