My first experience at the Wilma will be hard to ever top. I took my daughter and her boyfriend to Nickel Creek and we were absolutely thrilled with everything. The building is fabulously old and ornate and well maintained, the sound was perfect, and the people of Missoula are the best in a crowd...fun but not obnoxious. If you ever... More

I've been to many many concerts here and all over and there is something so personal about the Wilma. It is slightly run down but its very old so that's expected

The local theaters were showing fairly unappealing big summer movies. This little theater was a refreshing change. We took a look at both theaters - the large one needs a little restoration on the seats, but looked fairly comfortable and would make a fine concert venue as well. We saw a movie in the smaller theater - comfortable. A cool... More

The Wilma is a beautiful historic theatre; seeing a film here is always enjoyable and the staff are helpful and professional. I love going to the Wilma and always have.

Built in 1922, the inside of the downtown theatre remains fairly true to its original make. If you think the current owners are cheap and not giving it an upgrade, then go to the restrooms. Modern and immaculate, you then understand that they are keeping the rest of the establishment true to its roots. We applaud you for that decision.... More

An actual balcony in the main theater. It reminded me of the State Theater in Monterey (but not as well maintained). Their website listed incorrect movie times so call before you go.

This place is cool, I hope it isn't completely renovated anytime too soon. You don't see places like this still operating nearly enough. The acoustics were excellent, plenty of beer on draft, and great location.

I've seen many shows at this venue including Nickel Creek and Jewel and I only wish they had more and more shows. It is an old theater with limited seating, but it is a great, up close and personal way to see a show.

The Wilma Theater is the best place in Missoula to see concerts. There is no bad seat in the house. We have seen several rock shows there and loved every one of them.

The Wilma is a treasure that has been ignored. Someone needs to sink some money in her and restore her to her glory days.
