Great venue for opera, symphony or movies. The Saenger has been around for a long time and has been recently refurbished. It is a beautiful old theatre with comfortable seating. Handicap accessable.

This old lady is a beautifully restored venue that continues to go strong even after several renovations. It is the home of the Pensacola Symphony and Opera in addition to bringing to the public touring Broadway musicals. It is a real treat to attend a performance in this theater.

The Saenger is better than ever since its complete renovation. It now has room for bigger, more elaborate performances. I am a long time Broadway Series subscriber and enjoy performances each season. Lots of choices available year round. Don't miss the opportunity to see what interests you most

The Saenger Theatre is a great opportunity to view a variety of plays, music, and top notch entertainment. Parking can be an issue around the theatre so come early or take a cab. Bu, one thing is for sure; the Theatre is a treat in itself.

Beautiful old theatre in downtown Pensacola. Has been refurbished. Attended a performance of Celtic Woman, and when we booked from home, only a few seats were available in the first balcony on the side. We took a chance and booked anyway, and were not disappointed. There doesn't appear to be a bad seat in the house. Elevator available if stairs... More

This theater is beautiful. It was opened in 1925 and before it closed it's doors in 1975, it had been a movie theater as well. It was restored and reopened in 1981 and then renovated in 1995. It is a big, beautiful place to see a variety of venues. There is not a bed seat in the house!

I've really enjoyed the few shows I've been to at the Saenger. It is small and intimate and the two shows I've seen were very well done.
