We have been to numerous performances at the Coronado. Even the "nosebleed" seats in the balcony are very good. Sound is excellent. The architecture is superb. Chose your performer and buy your tickets. This is one of the finest places we have been to for performances, and that includes The Met in NYC, and several venues in Chicago.

This is a treat of a theater having been restored to its glorious past. The interior is very ornate, seating is comfortable and plentiful. Parking is in a garage immediately across from the theater. Only wish they would have more quality shows and quality downtown après show places to go.

A friend and I saw The Long Island Medium here. Awesome experience in a cozy setting. The chairs were comfortable, the sound carried well. Best surprise, more bathrooms that most older theatres.

We have attended many shows at the Coronado and they have all been made more enjoyable by the beautiful theatre. I have never had a bad seat and since it is a smaller venue, you have a more intimate experience. The gold gilt and oriental styling are so over the top that it is superb.

I was at the Coronado Theater last week (06/07/14). It was my first time there, and it was exquisite. The theater is Art Deco style: highly decorated and ornate. Red dome, gold columns, great sound, classic. This is a great old theater, made with great artistry and construction.

Always love the Coronado! Variety of shows is amazing. Always worth the visit. Saw the Symphony today perform with a house full of school children; the kids were truly enjoying themselves. The Symphony is a real gem. Yet, was just there a week ago for a Broadway show. You can always find something to your liking. The theater itself, is... More
