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.

You can actually see from any seat in the house. Great show the night we went to see The Nutcracker. Walked from our hotel, it's in a great location, surrounded by restaurants and bars!

The theater was clean, ornate and the staff was very friendly. There were drinks u could purchase downstairs. We were there for Jeanne Robertson and the sound was good. It got a little warmer in there than I think they expected but nothing too bad.

It is nice that this is a venue that follows others who have helped develop and revamp the old downtown Pensacola. A group of us watched "American Graffiti" and enjoyed not only the nostalgia of the movie but the entire ambiance of this tastefully restored theater. This theater caters to not only movies but symphonies,musicals, Broadway shows and many other... More

Last time I went was to see Edgar Allen Poe short stories which they were great. I had been there for Operas, musicals,plays and concerts. Great theatre to take your family.

I have been a season ticket holder with my sister beginning year two. The shows are always phenomenal. It's great to have dinner downtown and see a show. Some of the shows that I wasn't sure I would even be that interested in have turned out to be some of my favorites. We have just seen the first show of... More
