I came here 2 nights for the Live in the Vineyard event which was awesome on its own, and this theater was a nice surprise. I am not sure of the history, although I am sure it is rich, but this place is smaller than I though (PRO) and the sound is good. What else do you need? Lobby never... More

The Friday night concert included Fitz and the Tantrums. They had a lot of energy and put on a great show. The real down side was Mary Lambert. Watching and listening to her is like having a root canal.

We attended the Boz Scaggs concert in Feb. The concert was incredible, the sound system was out-of-this-world and the theatre was opulent! I can't say enough about it. Upon entering the building through the swinging front doors you were transposed to a different era. It was a step back in time. We had been told that the theatre had undergone... More

I was in back row, but still had good sightlines. Comfortable seats and you can bring in your drinks. John, who runs the box office, is very helpful in choosing seats. His interest in the theater really shows.

I have only seen one show here. The place is gorgeous. Reminds me a lot of the Crest Theatre in Sacramento. They get a pretty good line up of people. I am always on the look out for something to do locally.

This is a beautiful old theater with original architectural bones but desperately in need of new carpet and upholstery. The musty smell is overwhelming and distracting. It is extremely dusty also.

Very easy to park and get in. Good bar selection and courtyard cafe. Really intimate facility. Comfortable seats and you can take your drinks inside with you.

Went to see Natalie Maines (former Dixie Chicks singer) in this awesome little theater in Napa and was thoroughly impressed. The venue is spectacular - a beautifully restored theater that is not only beautiful to behold, but has a cozy feel as well. There literally wasn't a bad seat in the house. The acoustics were FANTASTIC! Seats were comfortable (typical)... More

Me and my wife headed here to see Craig Ferguson live. We had a great time and loved the layout of the theatre, not too big, not too small. Just cozy. Love the big sign outside, get the old school vibe. Definitely check out a show of some sort here if you get the chance!

Thank you Rick for your comments about Uptown Theatre! As you can see, the old theatre was lovingly restored and with great attention to detail and a state of the art sound and video system. We love hearing from locals who visited the theatre as kids for movies and now again as adults catching premier headline entertainment. See you soon... More
