Went here for a concert. The theatre ceiling, etc are beautifully restored. Nice sight line and acoustics, but really tight seating. When someone wants to enter the row, there is barely enough room for them to enter even with standing up for them to pass. There is more leg room at both the Orpheum and Pantages theatre which are if... More

If old theaters are your thing, you will love it here! The acoustics are great and the setting is intimate. I have seen Imagine Dragons, Jason Mraz, and Bryan Adams there. All different sounds, all great times. The drinks and snacks you can purchase for the show are overpriced, but parking is normally pretty cheap around the venue starting after... More

What a beautiful place to see a concert. Hubby and I saw Boz Scaggs. The venue was gorgeous and ornate. And the sound was incredible. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. With most older theaters the seats are crowded. It didn't feel crowded at all. We traveled 4 hours to see the show. We will... More

The lobby was very eloquent. The theatre has a very comfortable feel and I would recommend seeing a play or concert there.

Went last night to Sarah McLachlan. It is an ornate theatre and has decent amenities. The staff is pretty serious about taking care of the trouble-makers so the rest of us enjoy our experience. The sound is great and every seat on the main floor is a good view of the stage.

Love seeing musicals here. Gorgeous old theater. Great sound. Sonderful views of the stage. Long lines for bathrooms at intermission, so make sure you go before it starts.
