Ah, what can I say about this dignified old gal, with her confection of white columns, neon, and vintage beauty. This is where I like to catch a Matinee with other native Sacramentan's (who were born here, and work, live and play here). Sometimes they play the classics...or something edgy or odd--Blue Jasmine.

If you like the classics, this place is great! Very nice, intimate setting, even the nose bleed seats have a great view of the stage!

We say the Wailin' Jennys at the Crest Theater, and hoped that the intimacy of a small venue would create the kind of enjoyable environment for a concert that we longed for. We are not fans of the big arena productions and crowds, so we were anxious to see if a performance at the Crest would satisfy us. We were... More

We went to see Kris Kristofferson at a concert supporting the Grange and the effort to make hemp production legal. There was only one window for both ticket purchase and will call and it was very inefficient. The venue itself is nice, and Kris ran through many of his songs doing his best with a 78 year old voice

Had a great time at the Hot Tuna and David Lindley concert. Nice venue. I guess they don't show movies here anymore, but I have seen many fine movies and great concerts here over the years

Intimate venue (meaning it's a bit small). Parking is easy for a major city. Acoustics are OK. I like the Crest Theater a lot.

Cool old theater which has been beautifully restored. Saw Straight No Chaser perform here on Saturday and was the perfect space for this performance. Awesome ceiling molding and classic lighting transport you back in time. If you have the chance to attend a show here do it. The only downside is that when you leave late the area has a... More

Great place to watch a film on the big screen or come to a mid sized concert. Nice nastalgia of days gone by adds to the experience. Nice venue for a date.

A very nice Art movie house and live theater in downtown Sacramento. The better foreign films are shown here regularly.

Great, old school movie theater. It makes you feel like you are going to a real event, rather than just going to a movie at the bland theater in the burbs.
