We saw Livermore Valley Opera's production of Rossini's Cinderella at the Bankhead Theater. Amazing! Great acoustics and although we sat in a side section, we had great stage views. Livermore has an outstanding opera company and the perfect theater to show off their awesome talent!

Bankhead Theater is a very nice "live" theater in downtown Livermore. What I mean by live is they have live music groups (this summer the Tubes), plays, special events, and more, It is nicely located in downtown Livermore. They mostly do events on the week-ends, but do check on their web site for what the theater has scheduled for the... More

Bankhead Theater has the greatest live performances anywhere. I've been here many times. When my mom was alive we would take her to see, "Nutcracker Suite". It was our annual Christmas celebration. Thanks, Bankhead, for making such memorable events for me.

If there is something going on here it will be an A-1 experience. I have been to many things here over the years and loved all but the art shows (just not me) But downtown Livermore is so fun and this place is awesome if you get a chance you will enjoy it

Every seat is a good seat. Enjoy all the extras available to the theater goer. Convenient parking, great restaurants in the same location. Meet your friends bring your family. A center Livermore should and is very proud of.

The individual seats could be more comfortable and there are areas that you can not see the whole stage. I have been disappointed with the Bankhead from the first day it opened!

Not a bad seat in the house. Acoustics very good. It would be great even if it were not the only game for miles around.

Every seat in the house is a good one. The acoustics are great. The tickets are fairly priced and so are the concessions. I think the one problem they may have is attracting popular productions consistently to the venue - sometimes they are off the radar. You have to remember to check to see what is happening at the theater.... More
