Fun Show!

This was a beautiful old theatre. We saw Rain (Beatles tribute band). The show was fun and this venue was fine. Parking was easy.

We head to Old National at least once every 2 to 3 months to catch live music shows. We are heading there Saturday to night to see Sufjan Stevens and was able to score last minute royalty seating in the theater room. We have seen shows in the Egyptian Room many times. We have done both standing room only and... More

Went to see a comedian in the Egyptian Room. The seating was banquet chairs lined in rows extremely close. There is no grade to the flooring so if you sit behind a taller person your view is greatly impaired. The architecture and decor is beautiful. The seating is majorly lacking.

Theater lobby very dark and hard to walk to the stairs to get to the Egyptian Room. Not user friendly if you need to use the Elevator. Upstairs the lobby had merchandise set up and two bar areas. Do Not get the bottomless drink, it is basically one can of soda in a large glass. Did table seating for the... More

What a beautiful venue! I attended a concert there this past weekend on 3/14 for Ledisi, Leela James and Raheem Devaughn. I was pleasantly surprised at the overall feel of the theatre. There were plenty of bars around to serve you a bountiful of drinks and they even sold real food/snacks! Customer service was great from the entrance door to... More

I am writing this review in hopes of helping someone else pick seating. The balcony provides the best view, in my opinion. I just recently splurged to get the premium royalty seating. My reasoning was that, in previous visits, I found the normal seats to feel cramped. The aisles are small and leaves little room for legs...and I am not... More

I liked the venue. There were bars with alcoholic beverages and soft drinks available as well as snacks. It was well appointed and spacious. My only complaint is I would have gladly paid extra for one of the few premium seats available had I known of their existence. I realize the type of show we attended lends itself to mosh... More

This place is magnificent, it might be from being out of town and loving the old world, the 1920's-1930's era but it was unbelievable the size of the whole venue within itself, very very nice, well taken care of, and still looks very similar as did it when it was built with it's grandiose matter with every detail all around...
