This old theater is definitely an antique! It's really fun to see a play or a movie. It's just like walking back in time. Great rainy day standby!

The Holly shows mostly plays and older movies. We saw Steel Magnolias and it was wonderful. It's just a small, older, one screen/stage little movie theater. Just check out what's playing when you're in town. You'll have a good time.

Any event, or play held at the infamous Holly Theatre has been a terrific event. It is one of the landmarks and traditions of the area and without it, the face of the town would surely change. Koodos Dahlonega!

I have been several times with my young god daughter to see the child plays. They are always very entertaining and her eyes light up seeing them on the stage, much better than just putting in a DVD. These shows happen often and we go as much as we can. I also have seen some adult plays which were also... More

The Holly has it all: comedies, musicals, educational programs, and drama. My wife and I have attended numerous events over the past decade. Rarely have we been disappointed. We especially enjoy the relaxed informal atmosphere at all times and all events. The Holly reminds me of the small town theaters of the 40s. (When life seemed a lot simpler.)

If you like a touch if history combined with some great stage acting then you should go to this theater. While it dosnt have a wide selection of food or drink its I good place to go for a night out

Done of the best dhows I have seen here. I love that when you walk in you feel just how old the place really is and how they have kept it the same. I have acted on the stage and made many friends here. Pago see a show here and support the arts.

They are currently running "Spamalot", which is a remake of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Great show, they kept the same sequence of events, but tweaked them enough to make it their own. If you need a good laugh, it's the musical to see!

I've only been once to The Mouse Trap, but I was amazed by the local talent. Everyone spoke in British accents, and that's hard to do when you live in Georgia. LOL I was visiting the area, but if I lived there I would definitely attend more often.

Granted I've not seen every play performed at the Holly but of the ones I have seen I have never seen a bad one. It amazes me the caliber of talent both on stage and off that donate many hours of hard work so others can enjoy reasonably priced live theater. I have just left another fantastic performance ....
