This wonderful theater is located in downtown Venice,FL. There is plenty of parking next to the theater and across the street in the municipal parking lot. The theater offers comfortable seating, great acoustics, and wonderful live theater. As a resident of Venice, I totally enjoy going to the Venice Theater where I do enjoy theater.

I have attended this theatre 4 times. Ive seen a musical, and 3 comedies. I feel that a small town like Venice has a large luxury with being about to provide theatre such as this. Each time that I attended I felt that I got my monies worth..

This venue is a very wonderful place to see a variety of plays with quality actors/actresses. I am always amazed at what an excellent entertainment experience that the patrons have each time they attend a play. I love the atmosphere too. Can't wait to go back!

Have been several times to main stage theatre. Comfortable seats with great views from everywhere. Went to the Pinkerton theatre the last time which is not booked seats, but sit anywhere. Good play and informal. Overall, both theatres rank very highly. Easy parking in free car park or on the street. Also valet parking if needed.

Our next show was the Kingston Trio. There were no original members, however they played ALL the music of Kingston Trio and were very good and entertaining. Our third show was... More

It took several visits to Venice to finally make it to the local community theatre, located in the midst of the quaint downtown. Easy to park, easy to walk down the street to one of a number of good restaurants. The performance took place in the larger of two theatres on site. Comfortable seats, good sound quality and very good... More
