This theater is run by volunteers and they do a Grand job! We've been to many shows here and always had a grand time! The seats are comfy which is a plus for me as I have back issues. Frankfort is so blessed to have the Grand!

Have been here for numerous events since it was renovated. An all volunteer organization runs it, and is used for movies, concerts, plays, etc.

Nice small venue for a concert. The restrooms could use a little work, but other than that I would definitely see a show there again

Its a great asset to Frankfort to have a real theatre to see ballets, live plays, old movies, etc. I wish we as a community utilized it more. It still needs restored in some parts but its a beautiful piece of history that needs to be preserved for generations to come.

I love old theaters and was happy to see that this one has been very well preserved and maintained and is still operating. But I was really expecting to see something much more, well, GRAND!
