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...

Went to see the Book of Mormon here, and the theater is a lovely old gem with historic decor from the Art Deco period. Sadly, it was not the most comfortable theater to see a 2.5 hour show. The seats were narrow and squeeky and the aisle was non-existent once people were seated. Your knees almost touch the seat ahead... More

I got to see some cool punk bands here as well as weird al and had a great time at these shows. It's not a huge venue, but it's still a lot of fun.

These old theaters somehow give you a feeling of being closer to the stage than the modern barns. That said, be prepared to have stiff knees when the show is over, because the seats are crammed together. Also, this site really needs to update the bathroom situation. Having everyone travel up and down the stairs to the basement is really... More

this is the old Murat theater. they have main room for broadway series shows, but the also have ''side'' rooms for concerts and lots of other things....they remodeled it in the 2000s. I have seen several concerts in the main theater, and most of the broadway shows....its just a great venue...the lobby is old style looking with modern facilities.

I saw Salt-n-Pepa in concert and it was great. Any seat in the whole place had a good view of the stage. I also was surprised to find out that they had a bar, very nice. I would definately go back.
