We went to a movie one night while visiting the Highlands. Comfortable seating and great customer service. Would go back and good location downtown.

This intimate playhouse offers also movies. They playhouse is upgraded with a great movie screen and sound system plus much more. Enjoy a movie with a glass of wine after a day of hiking.

Have enjoyed plenty of plays at this venue, attended a piano performance Saturday of Labor Day weekend, and now have been to a first run film there! Yes, the 100 Foot Journey was playing there and it was delightful to sit in that theater again. Parking is a bit limited but the popcorn is far more reasonable at the mega... More

Having been to local theaters many times, we decided to spend our first evening in Highlands at the Highlands Playhouse to see the play "Pippin". What a spectacular performance! This is a very nice facility, and the professionalism of the performers was amazing. It is definitely the best local performance we have ever experienced….. from excellent sets to superb acting....

Enjoyed the unique play, Pippin at this playhouse which serves as a summer theatre for young aspiring actors. We had seats in the second row so we were really up close. The young actors put their hert and soul into the performance even tho the theatre was not full. Pippin is kind of a quirky play but the music and... More

A intimate little gem, the cast is composed with unbelievable voice quality, talent and humor. I go nearly every time I am in the area and have yet to see a show I did not love. It is usually a new take on a show you have probably heard of, but it is the next best thing to having someone... More

Wonderful intimate little theater gives a bang for your buck! Start the evening with dinner at nearly a dozen gourmet restaurants within walking distance. The shows present superior talent and I have always left with a smile. In the years we have gone, I have yet to see a show which we did not love. The 2014 line up is... More

I love the opportunity to go five minutes from my Highlands home to first run movies in a super clean, comfortable atmosphere at the Highlands Playhouse. The screen and sound are just like those in the big city. A big "Thank you" to everyone who made this possible.
