we hit here for the first time in a couple years to hear the "One and Only Tommy Dorsey Orchestra," just the right combo for this historic venue which continues in terrific shape despite the mysterious disappearance of long-time artistic director Frank Cannatta... great organ concert before the Big Band, with the Mighty Wurlitzer rising from the orchestra pit to...

Saw Hugh Laurie at the Riviera and was not dissapointed at all by both the performance and the theatre. Great atmosphere and acoustics along with comfortable seating. All the staff is accomodating and friendly. Parking can be tough but gives a great chance to park a little further away and take a short walk on the pedestrian friendly street with... More

Any number of very nice shows in a theater brought back from rags. It has steadily improved over the years and has had more new, interesting productions as the rehabilitation has progressed. Well priced and comfortable. Like a mini Sheas Buffalo.

The last visit to this venue was in June to see the opera, "Tosca." I appreciate what has been done thus far. However, the seating is a bit cramped for the older set who attend events like this one. Handicap and mobile accessibility need to be of greater priority. I understand that much of the effort is on a volunteer... More

So much goes on at this theater! Movies, plays, concerts, etc. We came in March for the Matt's Music 50th anniversary celebration and enjoyed the theater all over again! We also visited for several other of the theater's events.

Come enjoy the Riviera Theatre. Quite a piece of old movie & stage theatre with a playing organ that rises out of the stage. If going to a venue, check to see if the organ will be playing 30 minutes prior to the show. Well worth getting there early just for the opportunity. Old time music that anyone can enjoy.... More
