A little outdated but great acoustics

This venue could use some updating in several areas but it is intimate, pulls great acts, and has wonderful acoustics. Catch a show here if you can.

I have been coming here for decades to see shows. In 2014 I became a volunteer. The Grand is beautiful and a wonderful place to see a show. They have everything, from all types of music to ballet to comedy. It holds about 1200 people, so for a show that is popular it is best to buy your tickets in... More

I have been to The Grand many times and always have a great time. The shows display a wide range of varied interests. There really isn't a bad seat in the house. The acoustics are amazing especially in the balcony. Straight No Chaser did an encore with no microphones and the sound in the balcony was perfect....you could easily every... More

We have seen Lindsey Buckingham and Grahm Nash separately perform fantastic acoustic concerts in this venue. Always the performers remark," This venue is a true treasure! Don't ever let"them," tear it down!" The accoustics are perfect. Best to get on their mailing list so you know who is performing when; otherwise you will miss it. Cheers!

We visited here for the first time to see Joe Bonamassa in concert. This is an absolutely stunning building. I think every seat has a good view of the stage, and the accoustics were great. Every staff person working the concert was super polite, courteous and helpful.. I can't think of a better place to watch a show. Seemed to... More

We attend the Grand several times a year. There is not a bad seat in the house. Sound quality is great. Cost of shows is very reasonable. Parking is convenient. The type of shows is broad.

My husband and I love this venue. Every seat in the theater is a great viewing spot for all types of performances. The inside of this venue has been restored and the restoration is priceless! Highly recommend this venue for any type of performance. We are very lucky to have the Grand in Wilmington, Delaware.

The hall dates from the 1870s. It was renovated in the 1970s. The seats are comfortable. The lobby space is excellent which is particularly nice when it is raining or cold out. The restroom facilities seem more than adequate. The acoustics are fine as are the sight lines. My wife and I attended a classical music performance that featured piano,... More
