Never again. This theater is historic, sort of well-restored (wish they'd done some more research and exploration before charging through--patience is a virtue for a reason), and should have been an amazing venue, but it's so poorly managed and has almost zero marketing, it's really not being used to its full potential. I had such a poor experience with the... More

The Old Town theater has struggled to connect with locals and visitors, but it recently found a winning formula of live events, old movies and special showings. Tonight they are showing the Sochi Olympics Gala Opening, and it's a pleasure to watch on the large screen with drinks and snacks served. A recent magic show was a huge hit, and... More

Had a wonderful time with family and friends. Recommend for every one who likes to laugh. Tom is the best host and will go back many more times.

I have been to the Old Town Theater more than 10 times so far and it is remarkable what a transition this venue has made in the past 10 months. I have seen fantastic live music, nationally-touring and local comedians, and even a TEDx conference! Recent improvements have been made to the dining experience and now you won't be disappointed...

We attended a First Tuesday Night event with the Chaise Lounge and a featured artist. What a great evening! We only stumbled on this on-line, and it was a great start-off to our week in Alexandria. If you love music, check it out. I am sure the comedy is also great. The two hours was just long enough and flew... More

...now it's a rotating venue most often commedy. I have never heard of the performers, you probably won't know them either.

The theater is in the middle of town and surrounded by some... More

The theater looks incredible since the renovation in 2012! It's now a very classy venue with a great restaurant upstairs, overlooking King Street. Modern conveniences but old-fashioned charm. My favorite--the comedy. Never disappointed!

The theater is beautiful. The renovations are breathtaking. When I saw the pictures of what the theater used to look like before I was amazed. I saw a comedy show that was great. I went with my family and they also enjoyed the show just as much as I did. It's a great place for family and friends. They also... More
