The Fargo Theatre is one of those historic buildings that was part of a "golden age" of movie houses. Decked out in Art Deco style, the theatre is grand and glorious with a number of artifacts and displays that tell the story of another time when vaudeville, cinema and public performances were the norm. Author and historian Sarah Vowell was... More

This place has not a lot of room for people who are there to party' stood in a long line to use the bathroom at a concert.

ESPN comes to town in the fall for the NDSU Bison football games and sets up right in front of the Fargo theater. This is historic Fargo and the special movies played are from Cannes and elsewhere. They also have productions on the stage and also have the famous organ concerts. It is a must in Fargo.

What can you say about the Fargo landmark that hasn't been said... Since I was a little boy, going to the art-deco design Fargo Theatre has held strong. Going for a movie or the many special concerts, shows or gatherings is an exciting event.

We go here quite frequently for the wonderful independent films (some of my favorite include: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Dallas Buyers Club, and many other gems), and we've also been to concerts, fundraisers and film fests here as well. The theatre has been remodeled and is also home to a Wurlitzer organ that is really... More

The Fargo Theatre shows the more sophisticated films produced by the industry both domestic and foreign. This is my favorite theatre to see movies. I'm not one to attend the live performances but no doubt they are very worthwhile. The Fargo Theatre has been a friend to me since childhood and that was a long time ago.

I love this place and go there at least once a year for events. There is no bad seat and performances are always interesting and different.

I have had tons of great experiences at this theater. I have attended concerts, movies, and even a play and each time love being able to look at the lovely interior of the building. They offer birthday party deals for a reasonable price and get the movies that most theaters don't. My one complaint is that the seating in the... More
