No matter what type of show you want, check the schedule and plan your trip. If it's on stage, it's Top Level quality. AND the "Underground" is great for Date-night or school kids depending on your needs

Reno has a really great list of art attractions. The symphony is first class and depending on the time of year there are Broadway comes to Reno shows with outstanding traveling companies, opera sometimes and local talent. It is worth knowing what is on

We've been here several times for such events as the Philharmonic and other performances. The theater is well laid out, the seats are comfortable, the acoustics are good, the sound system is excellent, and the lighting system meets the needs of modern expectations. A good place to go for good performances!

The Mrs and I gave this a try it was my first time here. The seating was good. No one blocking us from seeing the stage. The sound could have been turned down just a smidge. The Mrs went to the consession stand and reported that the prices were reasonable. The first experience was good and I would go back... More

Pioneer Center is an excellent theater in Reno; it brings in very good shows. There is the large performance hall as well as Pioneer Underground. Pioneer Undergrond has a lot of very good comic shows. In Jan 2015 we when to the afternoon children's magic show and had a great time. There was a teacher from Yerington there (who lives... More

Pioneer's Broadway series brings quality road productions of Boadway shows, (Jersey Boys,Chicago, Etc.) to Reno at reasonable prices. Not a bad seat in the house. For food before or after a show try El Fuego for tapas or the Sienna Resort Casino for "Happy Hour". Plenty of free parking in the lot across the street.

Two theaters, the main one and the underground and I go frequently to both. The acoustics are very good and we have a philharmonic as well as opera, shows, broadway shows, and a variety of music in the main theater and more offbeat performances underground. Easy to park there, and lots of good restaurants nearby in walking distance.

Pioneer center is such a nice place to see a show, wish they had a more diverse offering, would be a great place for an intimate concert. I like the seats in the balcony, never have to worry about seeing as the seating is stacked like an IMAX theater. They need to add more refreshment stands as the lines are... More

All the seats have a good view of the stage. Locals enjoy going. They have snacks for sell such as... More
