I did call in regards to parking... More

I have been here twice, both times for a concert. The venue itself is fine. It's a beautiful theater. The staff however was a nightmare. Very very rude and nasty. No respect whatsoever for the customers. $9 for a glass of wine. $7 for a can of bud light. Waited in line for 45 minutes for a drink and therefore... More

I have never been disappointed by a show here, there is no such thing as a bad seat at the forum, I've even sang on its stage! If you have the opportunity to see a show here, do it! you wont be disappointed!

My friend suggested we see the opera, Die Fledermaus??I probably did not spell that correctly....anyway, it was shown in a beautiful facility; I loved the orchestra playing while the performers were so fun to watch....and if I could not understand what they were saying or singing, in English, the words were projected up top of the stage! What fun. A... More

This is a gem of a theatre. We have enjoyed the opera, Binghamton Philharmonic, and other performances. Reasonable seats are in the balcony with a great view. It is a beautiful theatre, I enjoy the before theatre drinks.

My husband took me to see "fifty shades of grey" last year and I loves the theatre. It was clean and well lit. The stage was visible from all seats. We sat in the mezzanine and had a great view. The prices for wine and beer were reasonable and the overall atmosphere was welcoming. The show was hilarious!!

Just saw "Carmen" presented by the Tri City Opera at The Forum Theater. The production was great! Full cast and full orchestra. Great costumes, sound quality, and performance! Wonderful old theater that has just recently been renovated from head to toe. Tri City Opera, great company, the Forum, great venue!!!!!!!!!!!!

Having moved to central NY from central NJ, I have been yearning for some good theater and this fit the bill. We saw the Broadway touring company of The Addams Family. It's a beautiful venue and I couldn't see that there would be any poor seats (though I did not go into the mezzanine). I was in the orchestra, but... More
